The original porch had to be removed and, above, you can see the new one going into place with footings that are 3-feet deep. The porch will wrap around the front and east and west sides. East side, below, has a door restored to the porch. Below the right portion of the brick has been restored by a previous owner ... the center section will be the next to be rebuilt. Three courses of bricks on the lower story, decreasing by one to the top. Anthony estimates the home will be finished by the end of this year.
Below, the west side. Those two windows, center section, at the bottom had to be dug out. They were buried in dirt. Anthony built a retaining wall next to them.
The basement above, now, below in 2011... most of the floor joists had rotted away..
