Just found this post, and read the entire thing. I was hoping to be snoring 37 minutes ago, but that didn't happen excellent work, sir I'll be showing this to my wife to try to talk her into doing this on acreage versus building in a neighborhood

That makes two of us.....likely 2002 of us.
No crap, now that I'm putting everything into perspective, my BIL sux! I'm gonna kick the chit out of him next time I see him and confuse the heck out of him when I start yelling "Why can't you be more like Jason?"
I may do that to my BIL tomorrow, just because in all honesty, I have a great BIL, but I wouldn't even allow him within a mile of any construction...unless I just needed someone to hand me stuff

Actually, if you read the thread, he actually says that of the porch on his own place.

Not much to update. Couldn't help but just sit here on the deck and overlook the sunset. God sure is good!

I had hoped to have the porch cover framed up by now. Pretty worn out from the wknd. Plan to stay busy the rest of the week and take a break this coming holiday wknd blasting birds, playing a few rounds of golf and pig killing!

I use 4x6 post. They still twist sometimes even if you install a bracket at the base.

R-Panel roof and believe they decided on siding the same.

Galvalume roof color and siding will be tan with black trim

Yes I will install myself.

I normally buy from Barry's Metal in Jacksonville or Metal Mart in Athens. Compare pricing and go from there. Will also call Mueller Metal but my guess is Barry's.

Rain has really slowed me down and deer season fast approaching!

Also took a new ranch managing job 2 months ago. I now manage 2 ranches 70+ hrs a week, work on house 2 hrs a day, and chandeliers 2-3 hrs a night. Busy busy busy.

Total cost so far once porch is framed and steps up will be $15,130. Little more than planned but still doing good.

I will update all the way until the end inside and out! Will take a pic shortly of what has been framed on the porch. Trying to complete it before the wknd rain coming.

Some will say it's a cheap way and wrong way to frame this porch. Not how I would do the transition if it were my own however this one is what it is. There will be a 3" drop at the transition. Not terrible by any means but I personally like a smooth transition. This way will work and should actually look pretty good.

I still have to go around and put 2x6 joist all around but post joist are up. Tops of post will also be cut. Overhang will only be the metal which again is a budget decision and will serve it's purpose. Corner joist will be fun as well figuring them out. FIL has been my extra hand on this and what little time we have we were able to knock out a lot on Saturday. Tomorrow evening get a little more done and hopefully Friday evening finish framing before rain hits.

Jason Great Pics and Descriptions as well as being very instructional ,hope everything with your wife is going better ,y'all are some of the nicest people I have ever met off TBH.Been talking to the wife about "lifestyle changes" and once I beat this cancer we are going to reduce most of our lifestyle including selling our house and doing a build that is similar to this so we can concentrate on the important things like traveling and spending more time outside hunting and camping. Thanks for all the ideas and for giving us a plan for the direction we might choose to follow.

Looks like there will be an even longer delay for updates. Storms hit yesterday evening and looks like more coming over the next 2 wks. This thread is going to continue being boring for a while. Lol

Just found this thread today. Great stuff Jason. Thank you for sharing. I even ordered the book!

I'm not sure what you're referring to as the transition. What should it look like compared to how you did it? I know you're busy so if anyone else wants to chime in as well I'd appreciate it.

Keep up the great work!

It should be smooth from roof to porch. I did this one where it will drop 3" from roof down to porch. Really won't look bad at all just not how I did my personal home or see others done. I'll take better pics hopefully this wknd to explain it a little better.

Little more progress on the porch today. Just picked up metal for the roof! $2596.00 for Galvalume R-Panel

Hopefully have porch roof and house roof done by the end of this coming wknd. Have to fit deer hunting in there as well.
