The existing house was built in 1950, with a second story addition being built in 2002. The homeowners had 2 desires for this project; increase the curb appeal of the house from the street & to create a covered porch on the rear of the house for entertaining, as the existing deck didn’t meet their needs.

To solve the curb appeal problem we designed a covered porch, created a canopy above the garage doors, installed carriage style garage doors & painted all siding & trim. The solution for the rear of the house was much more ambitious; we built a 2 story covered porch with access from both the first floor & basement. On the upper level is a covered porch with a fireplace, seating area, dining area & an open deck. On the lower level is a grill, a dining area & another seating area.
