Porch Photo 32



Before - Porch Photo 32
BEFORE
This garrison style house could be in any New England suburb.



After - Porch Photo 32
AFTER
A new porch now distinguishes this home from others on this street. The second-story, overhanging 'garrison' effect has been absorbed into the porch roof. By starting the new roof just below the upper windows, very adequate roof slope has been achieved.


Close-up A - Porch Photo 32
CLOSE-UP
Owner has wisely incorporated a beam above the Porch Posts. This not only offers a more traditional appearance, but also brings the Spandrels and Brackets into better view, as opposed to them being hidden in the shadow of the eave. This beam will accommodate the addition of Repeating Cornice Brackets and Post Face Brackets if a more three dimensional effect is later wanted.


Close-up B - Porch Photo 32
CLOSE-UP
Note that Handrails at the steps end lower on the Porch Posts than the main horizontal Handrails. This is the traditional way to maintain a comfortable Handrail height at the steps.
