This project was a fun learning opportunity. The construction technique of this porch was unique due to the overall height of the addition.

Outdoor Haven

This lovely home, located in the Woods of Williams Creek neighborhood, was built in 2003. The homeowners loved spending time outdoors, and enjoying the private view of the creek behind their property.

Enjoying The View

The clients wanted to be able to enjoy their outdoor living space from the comfort of either a multi-level porch or their open air deck area. Set on a brand new pressure treated structure and pier foundations, the new elevated deck has a private covered porch off the master bedroom, a screened-in-porch off the kitchen and an uncovered gathering area.

Focus on Flexibility

We kept the design consistent between levels by enclosing the existing deck with screen panels, providing a more enjoyable – and bug-free – outdoor experience for their family to enjoy during the warmer months. We made the screens retractable, allowing the homeowners the flexibility to use this outdoor living space in a variety of ways.

Matching the Old with the New

The upper covered porch features sconce lighting and 12” x 24” tile. We matched the arched screen openings on the lower porch to the original transom windows, and extended the hip roof further down, an architectural transition that allowed the original home to flow into the new remodel.

The Materials

We spruced up the ceilings with tongue and groove panels on both levels, warming up the space and adding visual interest. Trex composite decking in the color Rope Swing, with matching handrails that guide guests to the patio, where a stone veneer fire pit brings this outdoor living space together.

Client Testimonial

Our favorite part is our covered porch off the master bedroom. We love to open the French doors and let the breeze flow in. We start our days on the upper porch
with a cup of coffee and end the day reading and relaxing.
