Porch Photo 83
This porch could have stopped before it does, but we're glad it includes the set-back portion on the left, as this gives extra depth and interest to an already well-proportioned porch.
RIGHT SIDE VIEW
Side porches are often rather plain but this one could easily compete with the best front porches!
RIGHT SIDE CLOSE-UP
So many things are just right about this charming porch that it deserves our close attention. The flat portion at the top of these Post is relatively short. However, by selecting an appropriate size for each component, the owners were able to combine Spandrels, Arch Brackets, Running Trim, and Post Face Brackets into a very convincing, unifying whole. They even had us substitute the same Sun Ray #5 Bracket used on the porch when they ordered Screen Door #7141.
Because each component supports and complements the others so well, the entire porch is rendered perfectly. As with so many design issues, ultimately it is a matter of proper balance. This porch achieves great balance!
LEFT SIDE CLOSE-UP
The left side of this house basks in its own glory! Sun Ray Brackets, Square Drops, and Running Trim highlight the door canopy, while more Running Trim and Citrus Top Corbels are used to create wonderful window caps.
Even more Running Trim turns otherwise plain flower pot shelfs into highly decorative features deserving their own attention. (The upstairs windows received this same treatment.) Together, these design elements create a rich, three-dimensional texture for this side of the house.
The owners wrote: "Been meaning to do this for a long time. Have used many of your products, trims and screen doors etc., and have been very happy. Have attached a few photos."
