Porch House

The Porch House located just west of Springfield, Missouri, presented Hufft Projects with a unique challenge. The clients desired a residence that referenced the traditional forms of farmhouses but also spoke to something distinctly modern. A hybrid building emerged and the Porch House greets visitors with its namesake – a large east and south facing ten foot cantilevering canopy that provides dramatic cover.

The residence also commands a view of the expansive river valley to the south. L-shaped in plan, the house’s master suite is located in the western leg and is isolated away from other functions allowing privacy. The living room, dining room, and kitchen anchor the southern, more traditional wing of the house with its spacious vaulted ceilings. A chimney punctuates this area and features a granite clad fireplace on the interior and an exterior fireplace expressing split face concrete block. Photo Credit: Mike Sinclair

On to the roof project. I would like to maintain the sharp lines in the original architectural design. The Porch House above has a silver metal roof. The drip edge and the gutters are non-descript. Note how the roof line is not distracting and blends into the fascia. And the square gutters used on this project maintain a modern feel. The modern design is fresh. Where can I find some box gutters? Originally, my home was designed without gutters on all but one side. There's a lot more inspiration from Hufft. I love the Shed!
