Our porch has seen better days and unfortunately could not be salvaged.
First task, take down the old porch. Every single neighbour commented on how much better it looked without it, so there is a bit of pressure to make a good new one.
The build back begins with me putting in a new row of bricks and then Darren building the frame.
We used the old roof tiles although we replaced the damaged ones with spares that we got from a house nearby that was giving them away for free.
It's always good to test the roof for leaks before carrying on with the build, and fortunately, only a couple of hours after mortaring then in, a huge black cloud appeared overhead and the rain hammered down for ages.
All was good so the next job is the door and cladding.
