The extension to the rear appears to be an early addition. The front porch has been greatly expanded and new access steps have been provided. The original entry stairs are no longer extant. Most of the windows appear to have been replaced with vinyl or aluminum units. The small, original solid porch rail has been replaced with a simple baluster railing (which has been greatly extended to enclose the expanded porch deck) and the original half-height, built-up piers that originally supported the porch roof have been replaced with full height piers.
