Tear Down This Porch!
Room with a view.
Chicago has seen a number of back porches collapse in the last few years, some resulting in fatalities. Thankfully, the condition of my back porch is intentional. In reaction to these incidents, the city has increased building inspections, and landlords - like mine - are making sure they are up to code. In our case - we'll be getting a brand new open air porch to replace the old enclosed one that had a 15 degree slant to one side. Nice.
