Framing Nearing Completion /October 17, 2016 by Scott Newland The front porch is one of the last major framing efforts left on the house. Next will be full "drying in" so that windows and exterior doors can be installed. Overview from the street. The roof deck features a center planter (one side of which shown to the left), providing railing/privacy/spatial definition to the habitable deck. Planted roof areas will extend east and west of this.
