A New Front Porch traditional porch
 

A New Front Porch

BACKGROUND
Tom and Jill wanted a new space to replace a small entry at the front of their house- a space large enough for warm weather family gatherings and all the benefits a traditional Front Porch has to offer.
SOLUTION
We constructed an open four-column structure to provide space this family wanted. Low maintenance Green Remodeling products were used throughout. Designed by Lee Meyer Architects. Photos by Greg Schmidt
