work on the front porch continues

Over the past few days I've been chipping away at the front porch, I expanded it a bit from the original and we're enclosing the right half where i'm working now to make a larger dining area. I finished the new foundation wall for the enclosed half of the porch/dining area, its half concrete block and half wood framed. With support posts in place I've started removing the old exterior wall and a row of blocks from the old foundation so I can tie in to the floor joists. I installed enough floor joists to get a 4x8 sheet of subfloor down so that I could start framing some walls for support before i go any further down the line of taking down the old exterior wall and foundation.
