Exterior

The homeowners were tired with the look of their home and in need of creative help! With a Mansard style roof they thought there was no hope for creating an updated look and were just going to settle for a new front door and windows.

With a worn out picture they had saved for years of an arched style entry they loved, frankly at first glance just looked impossible to duplicate, we went to work!

Finishing touches include new copper roofs, custom made African mahogany entry door system and perfectly sized pendant light made the homeowners picture a reality!

this is a really pretty porch design. Could you tell me what size the columns are? And what style they are? They are well- proportioned.

could this type of portico be done without using the columns, just supports on either side??

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Your Home May Have a Renaissance Classical Past
Late-20th-century French eclectic mansard. A subtype of Second Empire style descended into early 20th-century American homebuilding, defined by a steeply pitched roof enclosing a second level and a nearly flat-hipped top portion. Late-20th-century builders very loosely interpreted its predecessors by creating mansard-roofed French eclectic-style houses such as this one. Cleverly remodeled to add a classically inspired entrance porch, this handsome house now appears elegant and comfortable. In the United States, you can find similar designs all across the country in suburban developments. Note on this example that the symmetry and traditional details nicely mix with its relaxed form.
