It seems we're going to have winter FOREVER! It has been a very cold and snowy winter so far this year...........and they're calling for more snow on Friday of this week. :-o I took my little boy outside to play in the winter wonderland yesterday and snapped some photos. I took one of the front of our house and it got me to thinking. Our front door is always exposed to the elements, sooooooooooo...... what do you guys think the front of our house would look like with a small covered porch. Well not porch really, but an "awning like" structure just over the door.......you know a shingled overhang with corbels instead of posts...............a PORTICO, that's what it's called! lol Wow, it took me a minute to get to the name huh! :-)
Like this one!!! This photo was borrowed from http://www.nuconceptswindows.com/ They have some great before and after shots of their work.........wow!
Okay, here is my house.........imagine something like that portico, only smaller, above my front door. Maybe with a copper or metal roof.......maybe shingles, I already have those. lol What da' ya think? :) (that's my little boy by the mailbox)
I would LOVE to be able to do something like that....of course I'd have to find the funds to do it with or find a friend that can build that owes me a favor. (wish I knew of someone! lol) I just think it would be a really cool solution to the constant beating my front door takes from the weather. What do you guys think? I may not have funding, but I love to dream for the future! :-)
