This lovely porch addition was part of a kitchen remodel that included replacing the bay window in the dining room with new French doors for better access to the new porch. The new addition is very large and gives them lots of space to enjoy the summers without the mosquitoes. The skylights add more light, the fans provide light and breeze, and the tile floor is easy care. We repaired their existing brick walkway and made it a second entrance to the porch from the outdoors. The other entrance faces the driveway. The porch is built with a retaining wall against the hillside, which is decorated in slate to match the new patio on the opposite side. The two tone decor is used both inside and out, and we provided texture in the inside with bead board along the knee wall.
