Many thanks for the prompt reply. Yes, by dog house I mean gable. See side view picture.

As you can see, the porch roof and dormers share the same angle. Ideally, I'd like to double the dormer window height to improve light and sight line from the third floor.

Is the fence just for decoration or is it around the entire property? - Thank you!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Ron Brenner Architects
The fencing defines separate yard zones and the edge of the front property. I don't believe the fence runs continuously all around the entire property.

What is the chimney material?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

This chimney was stucco. It also could have been stone matching the column locations.

I really like the front porch which adds a different dimension to the box shape of the colonial. What is the ballpark cost to add this to an existing colonial and how do you get started with design plans for a project like this.

Do you know the dimensions of the porch?

The porch is about 10' deep, extends the width of the house and wraps the corner back to a sunroom. From the corner to the sunroom it is a screen porch.

The fence was installed after the initial construction; therefore I do not have the exact information. However this appears to be a custom design constructed from cedar boards, rails and newel posts; with all components painted. The components should be available at most good lumber yards. This is a very classic, traditional look.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Diagonal cross balustrades are perfectly suited for the classic American Dutch colonial. Here they help enclose a screened-in porch.
