Recently we were given the opportunity to help one of our clients transform their home from a pretty Cape Cod home by adding a beautiful Craftsman porch. What started out as a mission to enhance curb appeal resulted in a transformation that featured a front porch with both aesthetic and functional benefits. Now for the details.
What We Achieved
We started with the overarching goal which was to enhance the home’s curb appeal. We achieved this by giving it a Craftsman porch that included a wide range of features.
Craftsman Porch Design Features:
• An expansive front porch with ample room to entertain, meet neighbors, or simply relax
• A bead board ceiling inside the porch
• Lighted ceiling fans to enjoy the porch day and night, and to add another level of security
• Stone masonry with custom tapered PVC piers
• Black aluminum balusters with wood rails
• Square lattice skirting
• Brick steps
• Adjoining lamps framing the door
What made this such a rewarding project was that we were able to complete the transformation by focusing solely on the front entrance area of the home. By adapting a space that had no prior functional benefit into a multi-use area, our clients can enjoy this beautiful addition almost year-round. Plus, the entrance is far more inviting and contemporary than before with the inclusion of brick steps that will require little to no future maintenance.
We made sure that the transformation was natural and fit the existing Cape Cod design so that upon completion it looked as if the home was initially designed with this feature.
What started out as a rough concept became an intricate design that exceeded the expectations of our client which is something we strive to achieve for each of our clients.
