Our standard plans include wooden colonial columns, which provide excellent structural support and can be painted or stained. Our component portfolio includes numerous examples of column designs, and can be provided in our standard plans or custom designs. Unique designs may also be developed and provided on any standard or custom plan. Examples of these columns may be reviewed in Design Ideas.
Many of our standard plans are illustrated with upgraded columns which are not included in the base plan design or takeoff.
Many column designs require a large footprint and, as such, will occupy space on a porch or deck that may require redesign of the area.
Custom designs frequently will include special columns. Inclusion in advance eliminates any issues with the affected area. Be mindful of your budget and remember that most custom columns involve foundation masonry or stonework.
