Porch Progress

Last weekend, my friend Kim gave me a cardboard tracing of the brackets from the West Virginia porch that I fell in love with this spring.  This morning, I tidied up the tracing and cut two facsimile brackets out of posterboard and taped them in place to see how they look.



I think that we are DEFINITELY on the right track.  The design needs a little tweak here and there, but the scale of the brackets is perfect for our porch.


What do YOU think?

  2. Very nice but I was wondering, can you do anything about those black pipes that frame the porch? Maybe paint them to match the bricks. Just a thought. Ellie

    Those black pipes are copper gutters and downspouts. They are really quite attractive and subtle ... just not when photographed from this angle.
