This renovation and porch addition tailors an existing house to fit the needs of its new owners and their dog. The new screened-in porch creates a more inviting and functional back entry into the house from the garage.

Details of the screen porch were refined to create an elegant, slim profile with the feel of an outdoor living room. Connected at the bottom of the existing eave, the new roof slopes up and out towards the beautiful, dense tree canopy in the backyard.

The new structure connects to a sculptural steel scupper, which directs water off of the covered porch and down into the sloping site.

At the far end of the deck, a landscaped area offers a place for the new owners to play with their dog. The interior renovations to the bathroom and mudroom help to organize the house for greater efficiency and enjoyability.
