Porch Photo 88



Porch Photo 88
This store front has a low porch eave which means short Porch Posts. However, since entry is from the end of the porch, headroom is not a factor. To maximize visual impact from the busy street, a Fretwork Spandrel was selected. Since these combine Brackets with Ball & Dowel work, they maximize the limited flat portion at the tops of the Posts.

Likewise, a low balustrade with short, heavy turned balusters was installed to fit the available flat portion at the bottoms of the Posts while providing strong visual appeal.

Short Post tops can also be maximized by the use of our Spandrel Brackets, as they allow Brackets to be installed next to rather than below the Spandrels.

Note that the beam above the Posts is correctly sized to the same width as the Posts. That permits proper installation of Post Face Brackets, thereby creating a pleasing Third Dimension. This is an important but often overlooked detail, since porches are seldom viewed from directly in front, but rather, usually at an angle.

Door Hood next to porch is beautifully supported by a pair of St. Charles Corbels.
