Porch Photo 15



Before - Porch Photo 15
BEFORE
This 'before' is really an 'after'! It is almost a certainty this fine older home originally had substantial wood turned posts or columns. They were probably replaced with ironwork supports in the 1950's or 60's. These are so lightweight the porch roof almost appears to be suspended!

AFTER
Fortunately, the current owner has come to the rescue. By using more Posts than were probably structurally necessary, the Spandrel and balustrade sections are shorter and more numerous. These additional bays increase the decorative "density" in a most pleasing way. Also, by dividing Spandrels and Railings into shorter sections, the porch actually appears longer.

You can tell from the front door height that this is a very tall porch. That allowed a 12" tall Spandrel with Running Trim below while still preserving more than adequate headroom at the porch entrance. The effect is lovely!

We would, however, be remiss if we didn't mention that all exterior millwork should be completely painted on all surfaces, including the ends, prior to installation.
