Ranch Porch Addition

This midwestern ranch house was lackluster and in dire need of character, as well as a front porch space for the homeowners. The new porch addition and dormer bring your eye into the space. The house project included a whole house window replacement, a full bath remodel, new garage doors and front doors as well as the porch and sidewalk. The craftsman style details add just the right amount of character to the front elevation and the scale feels inviting.

Yes, we extended the existing front roofline. Originally it was a simple hip like the garage. We added the gable over the porch (the peak you see set back), and added the porch roof protruding from the house.

Thank you, I love it. I would've never thought of adding anything but a plain gable, but your added creativity with extending it even more looks amazing!

How have you updated your ranch home? Did you add plantings for a little height? Did you add a pathway, porch or portico? How did you inject drama into the facade of your ranch?
