Project: Columbia Residence

Location: Swarthmore, PA

Contractor: Janusky Group, Bryn Mawr, PA

Completed:  November 2012

Type: Addition / Renovation

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.
