This project is the design and rebuild of a front porch on a South Side Bozeman home. This porches foundation and slab has started to sink and fall apart and as such has allowed us a great opportunity for a substantial re-design.
We considered at a number of ideas focusing on stair location, rail or no rail, planter beds, differing post styles, integrated seating, and stair railing options. We finally decided to go with a craftsman style design that fits well in this historic neighborhood. The new look will be an improvement functionally as well as aesthetically.
To an observer from the street or sidewalk, the look of a front porch can set a positive visual tone for the entire home and I think this design accomplishes that.
