The McCombs had been living in their house for 15 years. The small 3×3 front step was rotting into the ground so they decided they needed a new porch. They wanted their porch to be the gathering place for their neighbours. We maximized the size permitted by the zoning by-law to create a front porch that was usable for gathering, not just aesthetics. The new porch completely changed the look of the house for the better and the are constantly using the front porch with their neighbours!
Additionally the front porch added some much need privacy to their front living room which prior to the addition felt like “living on the street”.
