Hi Jmdilapi, the decorative beam on the porch you are showing is called a King Post timber frame truss. One note about exterior timbers, they do tend to require more maintenance and if featuring a clear coat, it may need to be reapplied every year or two to keep the look.

My sister and I have recently bought an American Craftsman bungalow to be used as a rental property, we are looking to renovate the existing home and to build another next to it since the land is zoned as an r2 of there's any advice out there we'd be thankful. We need to have the siding replaced and we're considering replacing the brick with stone, and we are considering tearing the dining room down to create an open floorplan. We are also contemplating on whether the second property should be a single story house like the one standing or a two story house.
