Most of our standard plans include some form of covered open porch, principally at or adjacent to the front door, with the intention of sheltering the entrance from weather. Every effort is made to add to the architectural style with the porch as well, including the option of adding upgraded columns, upgraded railings, and exterior trim components to the porch.
The addition of screened or open covered porches in other locations only adds to the liveability of your home, and we encourage you to consider the possibility of adding some roof and surround to your deck, the design of which is covered in your plan. By doing so you significantly reduce the modification costs by using the foundation and decking in your covered porch addition.
The addition of outside living facilities to a custom design provides a lot of bang for the buck. If your lifestyle includes living and or entertaining outside a screen porch addition gives back so much in return for a relatively modest investment. We can help you be creative and provide design ideas that will add to your leisure time for years to come. You can go a step further and include outdoor cooking or a firepit to your design.
