Beautiful work, Greg. The porch complements the house nicely.

Wow Greg. Adding the porch has really finished the front off nicely.

Greg, that porch work has added immensely to the 'curb appeal' of the farmhouse. Great!

Thanks everyone! It's always great to read your comments!
I really appreciate them all!

One other thing that I had to do on my front porch was to build a small step at the front door.
The sills I added kept me from bringing the porch roof right up to the bottoms of the window openings.
So the porch ended up being a little lower than it's original design called for.
Thus a bigger step to the front door required adding a extra step to look right.

You would never know if we weren't told about the step needed. Looks like it belongs there.
Plus the porch roofline looks better under the window blocks, than if it were up to the window baseline.

Greg,

I think lowering the porch a little makes sense with or without the sills, and adding the sills was a good modification as well. And with all the details such as porch and shutters the stonework looks great as-is without trying to carve smaller stones, which would have been a mistake. Good decisions all around.

Greg,

Be really careful about adding in the Front Steps. The Old Mainers knew that as soon as they added front steps the building was considered complete, and was therefore ... wait for it... here it comes... almost... you got it! Taxable!

We don't want any assessors getting ideas here!

Looking good, and I love the swing.

For some reason, I missed this farmhouse build, Greg. It's a fine example of your modeling skills. Your porch really brings it to life. I found your use of Gallery Glass interesting.

I wanted to see how this farmhouse looked with some interior lights on shining through the windows.
So I placed a battery operated tea light inside to give me a sense of what this farmhouse will look like at night.
I will use a warmer looking LED to light this interior, when I eventually get around to it.
