The homeowners felt that their front porch posts looked too spindly for this size porch. Originally, the posts were 4x4's that were stained dark brown. I wrapped the posts with 1x6 fir, and added trim to create some very nice square columns. There will be a low bench instead of railing at one end of the porch. The railings and bench will be also be made of fir. Beaded ceiling board will also be installed over the existing dark, rough plywood ceiling. Ultimately, everything will be painted.
