Porch begins

What begins as a fix-the-floor and restore-the-railing upkeep project has taken a bit of a turn.  The columns that hold my porch roof up are, in fact hollow - without the post inside I was expecting.  They are caving in on the rotting floor beneath them.

So... today, up goes the roof.  Up up in the air.  This should be fun.  The neighbors are certainly amused.
