While we are pretty dedicated DIYers, we decided to hire out a pretty big project recently. We had our second floor and back entry stars redone, and the door opened. I am not sure i have great before photos (oops), but here's a couple of progress pictures!
view of the backdoor and stairs (from the sink) before
view from the door onto the porch in process (old stairs, but railing gone)
same angle as first photo (but 5 feet closer due to tarping!)
