Porch Makeover

Porch MakeoverYou never get a second chance to make a first impression." The entrance to your house is the first thing visitors see. Does your porch give visitors the impression you want?

If not, here's a solution. The Porch Makeover project plan shows you, step-by-step, how to make the entrance to your home warm and inviting. And we show you how to do this yourself. So if your front porch doesn't look like our's in the photo, don't worry.

Our plan uses split brick pavers, which are less expensive and easier to work with than solid brick. So creating a new look may be a lot easier than you might think at, well, first impression.

This project was originally published in Workbench Volume 54, No. 4.
