Before and After Porch Designs

To See the Amazing Difference a Porch Makes

Fabulous front porch designs can make all the difference.



Ever wish you had an architect give your home a makeover? And take it from where it is - to where you want it to be?

Dave and I have some before and after pictures we know you will appreciate.

First, from a couple of our readers, Sandy, from Long Island NY and Billie, whose porch was 7 years in the making. Then we introduce you to an architectural firm in Utah that specializes in remodeling Renovation Designs Group.


Billie's New Porch on Her Ranch Home

Billie shares this picture of her ranch home before her front porch was built.
BEFORE


Billie's long ranch home was rather plain before the porch was added

She said it took 7 years for them to nail down the porch design for their home.

AFTER


We think they did an awesome job! The porch and new landscaping really make a huge curb appealing difference to Billie's ranch home.

What a fantastic transformation the porch made on Billie's ranch home. The porch landscaping, of course, adds immense appeal too.

Isn't it amazing the difference that a front porch makes on a home? Add to that attractive landscaping and you have a lot of goodness going on.

Sandy says, "It is amazing how adding a front porch and shed roof with a portico to a cape that had just a small stoop and no overhanging at all has made such a huge difference in the look of the front of our house. Now we are now working with a landscaper to do a plan for the front of the porch."

The landscaping sets off Sandy's new porch. Notice that the sidewalk was widened to match the width of the new porch steps. Looks just great.

Lovely landscaping on the other side of the porch, too

Isn't this an amazing difference on Sandy's Long Island home?


We are very appreciative of Sandy sharing her before and after porch designs pictures with us. Her home is wonderful proof that an inviting front porch can certainly up the "wow factor". Dave and I sure do love it.
