Client Goals: Create an outdoor living space to connect with a new sunroom and kitchen; link the porch to the driveway, yard, and lower patio.

Our Solution: We lengthened the porch outward to overlook the patio and wooded yard.  Extending the roofline gave the space a covered coziness. By using only one corner column, the porch and sunroom windows get maximum daylight. Dark tongue-and-groove ceiling creates rich contrast with the clean, simple white trim and the warm color of the siding. Recessed lighting and a ceiling fan make it a cozy space on a cloudy day, and a refreshing space on a warm one.

A curving, stacking-block retaining wall is echoed by natural stone steps which bring visitors down past the Japanese Maple to the lower patio.


  • Tongue & groove ceiling with aged oak stain and recessed lighting
  • Columns and spans with heavy crown molding and details
  • Fieldstone walkway to driveway
  • Natural stone steps down to fieldstone patio

Project Cost: $45,000
