This porch project had, literally, a good base to start from. The backyard boasted an existing variegated stamped concrete pad for a patio. The trouble wasn’t the pad, it was in great condition. The problem was the punishing sun hitting the west side of the house nearly every afternoon during the summer. Our mission: create an open porch working around the existing pad that didn’t block the many windows adorning the rear of their lovely home. As you can see from the stunning images we can declare this project mission accomplished.
