I very much enjoyed working on the redesign of your front porch area. What I’ve given you is a larger porch with a large, simple A-Frame roofline. This contrasts with the shed roof of the upstairs dormer to add some more visual interest to the front of the home. The A-Frame lines draw the eye up which tends to make the front of the home look even higher than it is. The lines of the columns follow classic Craftsman properties and, fit well in an historic home environment. Lighting is accomplished by a single Craftsman-styled pendant which enhances the wood-finish underside of the porch roof at night. A commissioned piece of stained glass above the door serves to add a sense of height to the interior as well as complimenting the Craftsman suggestions on the exterior. A couple of planter boxes and some rich green plantings round out the design. Classic, but with some modern lines. I hope you like my ideas.... enjoy!
