Craftsman-Style Porch before Craftsman-Style Porch -- Before after

This Craftsman-style home had a nice in-ground pool in back, but piecemeal additions, mismatched windows, and a plain chain-link fence made this yard uninviting.

Craftsman-Style Porch -- After

We created a central covered porch that provides outdoor dining space and better access to the yard. The porch features details derived from the home's original front porch—overhangs, brackets, lattice, and railings—while the porch deck conceals the pool pump and heater. A painted cedar fence completes the improvements.
