Tearing Down the Front Porch
Originally the porch roof started out about half as wide. Looking underneath I could tell where it had been added on to each side about 4 feet. Overall I guess it was about 14 feet wide and 6 foot deep. It had to come down.
Whoever invented the sawzall deserves a round of applause! I had purchased the Milwaukee Sawzall a couple months prior. I figured it would come in very handy. Handy it was. It is a tool that needs respect, like any other. Just ask the guy in the blue shirt.
One by one we were slowly taking out the supporting post's. Our plan was to eliminate all but one last center post. Hopefully we could sledge hammer the last post out from underneath and the porch roof would fall to the ground.
We all took turns knocking out post's. The porch roof was making more noises the closer we got.
One last hit and it was all over.
The roof swung down and hit the house then came to a rest. Piece of cake.
