Cornwall Homes - Sydney House Update

I first posted about this house back in 2013!

Cornwall Homes - A Much Needed Restoration

They have been continuing work on the house, but the progress seems slow. I actually didn't realize that it's already been 2 years since they scraped and repainted the house. Since then they've been adding a small front porch to it. It seems like they're nowhere near done, however.

Here are a few shots of the finished paint job (last summer?):

Not long after this, they started hacking away at the house again...

Here's the start of the small porch. I have no idea why they had to remove so much of the siding around the door after all the time spent patching it and painting it!

I believe they started building the porch last year, and it still looks pretty much like the photo above. I don't know if they've made any additional progress on it since then, and it's starting to get cold outside.

As a side note, "Cornwall's Little Historian" Sara Lauzon dug up a pair of historic photos of this house, and originally it had a large wrap-around porch. You will also see that the house was widened on the left side. Originally it was symmetrical. I'm not sure what year the "contemporary view" was taken in.
