The clients wanted to augment the street appearance of the house and allow for some shaded outdoor seating. This required footings, a slab for the patio, structural/decorative columns and careful joining to the house. We also put in new steps up from a new sidewalk to the porch/front door. We also extended downspout lines further away from the house foundation. We were all very satisfied when everyone in the neighborhood opined that it looked like it was original to the house.
