Porch Design Help

ross09July 23, 2010

Hello everyone, Thank you for your consideration. I'm interested in having a porch built on the front of my house and would like some suggestions with designing a porch that will fit the architecture of the house and enhance the curb appeal. The front entrance of my house, (in my opinion) looks like there is something missing and a porch should have been built by the original builder. (see attached drawing of house) The porch size should be aprox 13' wide x 7' deep and enclose the brick area on the front of the house, keeping in mind the offset position of the front door. The entire front of the house is on a single plain and there's a cement stoop with one step up from the walkway and one step up to the threshold. Any help, suggestions, or drawings is greatly appreciated. Thank you ross
