The first photo is our porch. I want to redo it and extend it out about 6 ft. Here's the problem. When we bought we were told the house was moved to the property.Attachment 6277Attachment 6278
These next 2 photos are the bottom of the porch. Yes when you stand on my porch, you stand over my basement. I have a feeling when they measured for the foundation, they didn't consider the porch.
My question. When I remove the existing structure, what do I do to stop air and water from coming in? I will be insulating but I need it sealed first.
Thanks
