This ironwork may or may not have been original to the house but it was there when I purchased The Glade in 1997. (The house was built in 1946 and the ironwork may have been added in the 1960s.)
Charlie dismantled the porches as he was our main demolition guy. (I wanted him to do the deconstruct rather than the contractor so there would be more care and less destruction. I’m sure it was the right thing to do.)
From time to time I have listed the ironwork from the porches on Craigslist hoping someone would want it.
Our purpose was not so much to make money but to have these large, awkward, heavy pieces hauled away.
Fast forward to yesterday a man came for the scrolly supports for a garden he’s constructing for his wife. He was delighted that it is the heavy old style iron instead of look-alike aluminum.
We ended up letting him have the ironwork for $25. He’s happy; we’re happy.
