I bought this small house so I wouldnt have to pay crazy rent when I retire. But now I gotta fix it up and need to start with the porch rebuild. House was built in 1920 and the porch was built in 1820 and stored in a closet till house was built I think. The framing is all rotted out but the deck seems OK. Probobly been replaced within the last 100 years. Cant realy see the deck cause its got this stuff called paint on it. The house has some pieces of that paint stuff all over it too. That paint stuff would be a good idea if you could cover all the wood with it. Any way my question- What wood should I use for the framing and for the decking, think I would rather have plank than plywood but thats only my preferance. Which ever is best wood (would) probobly be best though. Ill leave it up to you for the best choice. Remember Im an Okie so words with 5 letters or less are best. You can e-mail me at FrigginBozo@pldi.net I dont have any pigs or cows so I probobly cant pay you.
