Most people take for granted direct access to their backyard. This was not the case for homeowner, Deb Fallon. Ms. Fallon had originally called Monk’s Home Improvements about painting the exterior of her home.  While walking the property with the homeowner, Trevor Monk saw something that caught his eye. He was curious about the back porch that was 8 feet off the ground with no door to the inside of the home and no steps or access to the back yard.

He found out that the previous owner had closed off the only door that exited unto the porch from the dining room in an earlier renovation making it an unusable space. Trevor worked with Ms. Fallon to come up with a plan to uncover and reposition the original door to create an exit onto the porch and add stairs down to the lawn.

The project included a new door from the dining room onto the porch.
