Bonniepete - thanks for your question. I do prefer the casement windows over a double hung on this front porch because it fits more with the original look of the home. It also gives the front porch a stronger vertical feel and makes the door / sidelight combo more a part of the facade.

The steps were kept the original size but replaced to meet current code requirements (height / depth). The sides of the stairs are boxed out with wood framing on a concrete pad, then clad in a finish grade exterior plywood with trim boards over that.
