    The width is nominally 8 feet from house to edge of deck.

    I'm not used to asking a question so I am "piggy backing" off of another one. I have a customer that has shown me this porch roof as a solution for their house. The low profile with shingles bothers me. What is the roof pitch and are you using shingles? Their roof will have to go lower than 3:12 and I am suggestions a metal roof.

    Has this question ever been answered? We are putting the window schedule together and I love these!

    I was also interested in more information regarding the doors on the front porch. Is the interior door is a screen door? It is hard to see from the picture. nmwma mentioned it was a swing in screen door and the swing out patio door (double glass doors ). Beautiful function for a lake house or cottage where open air is desired. I was wondering if a sliding pocket screen door would work.

    Thanks for your question. This project was the complete renovation and refurbishment of an existing cottage. The wonderful wood porch columns were a part of the original cottage.

    Sorry for the delay. The exterior siding is eastern white cedar shingles. The finish on the shingles is a 50/50 mix of weathering gray stain and bleaching oil.

      Create as many shaded outdoor spaces as possible. This home has porches on several sides. The people who live here can follow the breeze as it shifts during the day and fully experience the area's ecology. Having multiple comfortable outdoor spaces allows us to shift location as sunlight shines from different angles. It also allows us to choose among them, and when we can make choices, we're more satisfied with our experience in the space.

      11. Visually inspect the roof and gutters. Get up on a ladder or climb onto the roof (carefully!) and take a look at the rain gutters, roof and chimney. If there are sticks or leaves blocking the gutters, pull them out now — you can wait until after most of the leaves have fallen, later in the autumn, to clean the gutters out completely. Look for worn areas on the roof and patch them as needed. Tell us: What's on your home maintenance list this September?More: What to do in your garden now

      The front porch is just another limb of the house. It's important to remember that it can be used many different ways, and its use should be specific to your needs.

      When looking at this new traditional home, we can guess how charming the interior must be just by taking a look at its expansive porch. Crisp black details, lovely lighting, stately yet unpretentious columns and wicker furniture beckon visitors.

      Looking at combining contemporary cable rail with a traditional cottage. The cable provides more visibility.
