As today may be called wet basement day in the Junction with so many people having water in their basement, door  porticos, which shield both the doorway and the foundations of many of the old row houses in the Junction, come to mind.

Finding one to model a new one after or assist in planning a repair of an existing one is hard in the Junction. But this one on Hook Ave is a great find. Most of the materials seem to be of the correct era with timbers seemingly real 2 x 4 in dimension.  The turnings look right. about th eonly parts that would concern are the lattice work and and the roof decking (which has clearly been replaced.)

The people who own this house have did the community quite a favor by not removing it.
