Pasadena, CA: Storybook Cottage Porch

Kim and Bob Fitzgerald found a fixer-upper in Pasadena. They liked what they saw and purchased the 1908 Craftsman five years ago. Their storybook cottage, though, is missing its front porch. The Restoration Realities team helps the Fitzgeralds lay a new historically appropriate porch floor, replace the sagging box beam with a 20th Century LVL beam and mill and build replica columns. At the end of the day, the Fitzgerald children danced a jig on their new front porch.
