this is where

... this has been my home for over 20 years.  the house is 86 years old.  the house originally had a front porch roof across the entire front of the house, but when i moved in, the columns were rotten and the 'popcorn stucco' finish was cracked and falling off.  sometime in the past, someone had covered the front porch with tile, but the tile just held the water underneath and the entire porch sort of 'fell off' the front of the house.
