This sad sight is the lower portion of the north porch. Pretty pitiful, right? I agree, but I am also thrilled that these pitiful bits remain, for they are invaluable templates.
The pitiful original lattice offered itself up as something which could be carefully measured for re-creation. And, behold, such a miracle ensued, and in treated lumber no less. Whoee!
This image reveals the all-important thick scale of the new lattice. I could not be happier. Well, I could, actually, be happier if the lattice was already installed. And painted. NOTE: After giving fine service for 120 years, the original lattice will be carefully stored in the basement. Thanks Doug for the fine work!
