Lake Oswego Front Porch

The clients requested that the front elevation be modified from the original late 1960's style to craftsman style, while keeping portions of the original window and door openings.  the columns and truss are of heavy timber to give the existing gable overhang a strong and more massive presence.  The porch floor was elevated off of the existing grade to create a separation between the structure and the yard, typical of original craftsman houses.  The detailing found on the porch is carried through other elements of the elevation, including the trellis over the garage doors and wood trim around the windows.
