Front Porch Addition Creates a New Welcoming Entrance
For this addition project in Shaker Heights, Ohio, Karlovec & Company added a minimalist and shady front porch addition onto the south-facing home, creating a simple outdoor living space for homeowners and a charming and welcoming entry for guests. After seeing the porch for the first time former Shaker Heights Mayor, Judy Rawson, said “how lovely, we could use more front porches!”
At A Glance
Front Porch Addition, Exterior
Winslow Road Shaker Heights, Ohio
Integration of roof line while also providing proper head height on the porch and avoiding windows on first and second floor. It was a tight fit!
Bead board ceiling; custom-built cedar shutters; recessed can lighting.
If feels so private even though it’s on a busy street.
“We love being outside and this allows for that to happen, even during a thunderstorm. And there’s nothing better than sitting on a covered porch during a thunderstorm!”
