Enclosing a portico?

EMC2011December 27, 2011


I have a small cape cod style house with a portico and front stoop. No foyer inside and my sis in law suggested to enclose the portico to extend /create a foyer we could use year-round. I wonder if it might be too small and dark though...any thoughts and pics to share? I did a google search but surprisingly can't find anything...
