Pimp my Porch!
We are in the final stretch of our build and must finally decide how to trim out the porch. The exterior look of the house evolved over the course of construction so now we're a bit lost when it comes to deciding on how we can get the porch to best compliment the rest of the house.
We plan on building 2' x 2' brick column bases or piers that project out from the foundation as in this pic:
We can't decide how high the brick base should be nor can we decide on whether the columns should be tapered or straight. Opinions? I'm meeting with the mason and trim guy on Wednesday. Also, we originally planned on 12" x 12" columns - too big, too small or just right?
We could eliminate the brick bases altogether and just do straight columns:
Here are a few shots of the exterior. The porch entablature is now painted the same off-white as the rest of the trim and the columns will be this color as well.
