Closing in the Porch

Now that Christian's new boiler has been lowered into the basement through a porch door, we are able to frame this area and close it in to protect water pipes.

The surrounding siding has come off to install new, clean, and insulate an old window space. The large casement window is framed to let most light into the porch windows and dining room behind them.

Below is the very old (1780) brick insulated wall exposed.


  1. It's fascinating to see how professional plumbers combine new plumbing techniques with old buildings and structures and come up with ever-imaginative ways to make technology work, whilst preserving character. The old farm reminds me of a project I attempted a few years back and could have done with some professional knowledge as applied here, to keep me right!

  2. What a beautiful building! When we renovated our small cottage we melded to install new water pipes and a boiler. This was obviously too much work for us to carry out and it really needed to be done by a professional. These professionals can do wonders!
