Design of a new style sensitive 1,800 square foot porch for a 1890 Shingle Style home to replace a modern 1970's porch addition. This project required meetings with and approvals from the local historic district commission.

Design Objectives

• The new porch transforms the entire feel of the house exterior and reinforces the look and feel of the original shingle style house.

• Distinctive and lasting materials such as copper, custom radius granite steps and ironwood decking are incorporated into the design.
