Front or back, the porch has a timeless charm that encourages relaxation and conversation. While the architectural appeal is timeless, we find ourselves truly enamored during the spring and summer months. Whatever the size of your home, there is always room to incorporate this welcoming respite.
The Entry Porch
This architectural feature will protect your entry from the elements while directing guests to the front door. It is a familiar option compatible with most home styles while lending a flattering first impression.
The Overhang Alcove
The extension of your roof line will create an intimate niche where you can enjoy the view and unwind.
Feelin’ the Breezeway
Linking spaces with a semi-enclosed area is a structural treat. It creates a place to catch a breeze without full exposure to the elements. Furnish with comfortable chairs or your outdoor kitchen equipment.
There is not a better spot for an iconic pair of rocking chairs. Reminiscent of the good old days, the wrap around porch is ideal for escape or entertaining at home.
Protected with screening or Plexiglas panels, an Indoor-Outdoor living area creates an easy transition to you outdoor activities. To see some of our favorite indoor/outdoor spaces click here.
Sleeping Porch Arrangements
Popular in the early 20th century before air conditioning became the norm, these semi enclosed areas provided the most comfortable nights sleep. Now they are nostalgic additions, usually on the second floor, where you can catch a breeze or enjoy a peaceful nap.
Whether you’re looking to add character or expand living space, be sure to consider all of the possibilities a porch has to offer.
