Porch Photo 69
Placement of second-floor windows allows this porch roof to extend up at a relatively steep pitch. Note the use of four 4" Porch Posts. For this size porch, two larger corner Posts would be more conventional. Perhaps four 5" Posts would best offset the present top heavy feeling of this little porch.
Half Posts against the walls would visually tie the porch to the house better, while also permitting installation of two more Brackets on these Posts. That would give the porch a more three dimensional feeling. Likewise, adding balustrade sections to each end and on either side of the front steps would help the porch appear less top heavy.
