Peaceful Porch and Balcony before Peaceful Porch and Balcony -- Before after

This family's beautiful, natural back yard was a like a nature sanctuary, but it needed better access, and the view deserved a better vantage point.

Peaceful Porch and Balcony -- After

We added an airy sunroom that allows the family to take in the view with a casual meal, and we expanded the porch, integrating it with the yard. We added a soaring balcony to the master bedroom, its end arched like that of the porch, both with railings that follow the curves. All of the spaces work together to transform the house and enhance the family's access to and enjoyment of the outdoors.
