The handsomely crafted porch extends the living area of the home’s den by 250 square feet and includes a wood burning fireplace faced with stone. The Chilton stone on the fireplace matches the stone of an existing retaining wall on the site. The exposed beams, posts and 2” bevel siding are clear cedar and lightly stained to highlight the natural grain of the wood. The existing bluestone patio pavers were taken up, stored on site during construction and reconfigured for paths from the house around the porch and to the garage.
