Help - Wife and I have a half-cape brick house (1855) and it needs an entryway. Property line is 3' in front of a small deck/uncovered front porch (which I will replace someday). Going into the current "entryway" from the front porch, you are confronted with the stairs (going upstairs) on the left behind the opened door and basically nowhere to come into, save the narrow passageway opening up to the LR (on right) and also going back to the kitchen. Any ideas? I have checked all over but am out of gas.
Wife and I are recently retired so money is also a consideration. Many thanks in advance - not sure if you e-mail any replies back or I have to check here, so e-mail is listed.
