Front Porch

We're in the process of potentially have a front porch built on our house. This afternoon we drove around some developments to try and get a feel of what we liked.

This first one is pretty much what we're looking for. I like the look of the straight roof line vs. the hipped roof below. The only problem with this one is the lattice work. I have a serious hate of lattice.

Hip roof with fancy columns. A little too fancy for us.

Another example of straight lines, although this roof doesn't go all the way to the end of the house. However, it does have these great straight slats on the bottom that I love instead of the lattice.

This is also similar to the doorway that we'll hopefully be upgrading to at the same time. When you add a porch you lose a lot of light so hopefully adding the two sidelights will let a little more in. I like this one.

So, keep your fingers crossed for us that the quotes come in affordable!
