House Six: Portico Restoration, Hardscaping, and Landscaping

Bob meets the owners of the sixth Elmwood neighborhod project house and reviews the proposed portico plans. Built in 1892, the Victorian home needs a new front porch.

Clip Summary

The Charles E. Hancock house, built in 1892, has original oak archways within, and beautiful wood built-ins in the dining room. Homeowners Berry Jean Murray and Celeste Declos want to restore the Colonial portico, especially since the front porch is the focal point of the home's front façade.

Terry Bates, the general contractor, performs the demolition. Reproductions of the spindles, rails, and a half finial will be milled by Forester Moulding and Lumber.
