The Extension 2: Revenge of the Porch

I’d almost forgotten that we were getting this bit done to the extension but the builders started to build up the porch section to the front of the house this week. And, as with the rest of the build, it was done at quite a pace. So much so that it had magically appeared between my wife going to and coming back from the shops!

It has a kind of TARDIS effect on the front of the house, doesn't look like much from the outside but is really good size when you stand in it. Pity the comparisons stop there, I could have done with some sort of space/time travel function built in.

That concrete block is our new front step. The size of it is due to new restrictions on access and what have you. Looking at the size of it, I'd say it was also suited for landing and taking off of Harrier jump jets.

This is where the patio doors are due to go. Its amazing the light work that a sledgehammer and angle grinder make of an outer wall. And it wasn't the slightest bit noisy...........

A view of the roof from further up the street. Looking very nice now with only the guttering to attach.
