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!”

Client Feedback

“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!”
