Details: Area of Porch and Mudroom Addition: 416 sf
Description: The homeowners were looking to rejuvenate the front of their 1920s colonial revival home. The new design introduced a wrap-around porch which added much needed curb appeal. An enlarged entry door painted a deep red gave the front entrance the attention it deserved, and the addition of sidelights helped bring more light into the foyer. To give the house a modern classic look, the exterior shutters were removed and a neutral gray and white paint scheme was chosen. A small mudroom was added to the side of the house to provide an informal entrance from the driveway.
