Project of a Lifetime: Demolition and Restoration of a Craftsmen Style Front Porch #1: Second year, progress to date

His old concrete steps have been gradually leaning, & it makes the whole house seem crooked. He said if he sits on a step, he feels like he’s going to fall off. This was quite an experience for me, because I’ve used a T-square, & triangles for so long. This project took me an awfully long time, but I learn...
