Recent job nearly completed. Customer wanted to redo porch with some Victorian/Country flair. I convinced her to redo upper gable with circle window and vinyl scallops. Just about everything had to be ordered. Favorite project was making the casing for the circle window from Azek.

    Really nice- Makes the house 100% more curb appealing!

    Did you have to enclose the interior side of that entry way after tearing out the original or did you already have an exterior door and wall up there? Looks great! Looks like you have some knowledge of design from the different eras.

    The addition of the new front porch looks great! And the round window is keen too!!

    Front door wall was not changed. New door, light, siding, and gable overhead. I did a lot of online image searches to come up with ideas. We talked about keeping the upper window, no window, half round, and circle.

    Yeah, I think you just increased the house's value.
    Very nicely done.
    My favorite part would have been the arch.

    Very cool. Well thought out and great curb appeal. One question...... why didn't your put on a new roof too? Thought you were a roofer.

    I hate the roof too. It is probably only 10 years old and though I did mention it, I wasn't going o try to sell a roof that wasn't needed.
