Back Porch - Ta Daa! (almost)

 TAA DAAAA!  One done and three to go.  Remember the porch he started on about a month ago?  Well, we had some friends over for dinner, and one of them is in construction, and he pointed out that....
the columns were done wrong.  See the top of the column. Even after he finished covering the wood, the top of the column would still have a landing on it.  Which means birds will make nests there all the time.  And guess what...he was right.
And to fix it, Dave had to take the entire porch apart.  Everything had to come off again.  So he had to start completely over.  See it's actually hard to see, but there isn't a place for birds to build nests.  I'll see if I can't get a better picture

 when I start painting columns.  Because once I paint the columns....

This porch will be completely finished!
