New Covered Porch Remodel

A New Covered Porch Adds Charm and Outdoor Living Space

The south end of this home was crying out for an inviting covered porch to open out onto the back yard in this quiet Burlington, Vermont neighborhood. Working with Architect Elizabeth Brody, we fashioned a simple covered porch that tied in nicely to the roof lines of the existing entry mudroom. We used Red Cedar decking and an elegant porch ceiling was fashioned with beaded tongue and groove Douglas Fir. Amazing how a little project like this can transform a home. Cost was about $9,500.00 (2009).
