New Porch

See the before and after!

What’s wrong with this porch? A better question might be what’s right with it. This was one of our favorite projects. The porch is original to the house, but was enclosed during a remodel perhaps 10 to 15 years back. The windows are too small and the wrong aspect ratio for the colonial farm house. The door is too small for code compliance, and for practical use. The front stoop looks like a temporary fix lacking a landing and handrails (not to code).

A lot happened on the way to the finish. We installed a larger and more handsome door. We also installed larger and more appropriately proportioned casement windows with mullions, giving a more traditional look. The front steps have a proper porch with hand rails.
