Outdoor living spaces have been a part of home design since the beginning. The oldest homes provided shelter from the elements and a safe place to sleep at night, but lacked the conveniences and comforts of modern heating, cooling, and lighting systems. In many cases, spending time in the dark, stuffy interior of a home during the day was not an appealing prospect, so people spent much of their time in outdoor living spaces such as gardens and courtyards.
Here in the South, porches have long been a feature of traditional architecture, and they provide a great place to entertain guests and simply sit and relax. Before air conditioning became common, many people also slept on their porches during the summer—enclosed bedrooms often got too hot for comfort, while porches were open to the cool breeze.
If you are interested in adding a porch to your property, you can turn to our team at All Seasons Outdoor Spaces for help. We have extensive experience in designing and constructing outdoor living areas, including porches, and you can count on us to help you bring your vision to life.
Our team understands everyone is different, so we take a flexible approach to our work. We have built countless porches over the years, and we do our best to design each one to suit each client’s individual needs and preferences. When you call our team for help in adding a porch to your home, we will take the time to discuss the project with you, listening to your ideas and adding our own suggestions, and then distilling everything into a cohesive porch design.
We will also be happy to listen to your feedback and make adjustments until you are completely satisfied. During the design phase, we’ll also inspect your home and land and take careful measurements to make our designs as accurate as possible. Our team will make sure the final design is well-suited to your home.
Once you are satisfied with the porch design and ready to move forward, our team will get to work on the construction process. First, we will lay the foundation for the new porch and then install the framing for the floor. We’ll also install the awning or other cover to keep off the rain. If you want to enclose your new porch, we will install the screens, windows, or other materials for you, but if not, we will instead install railings around the edges. If necessary, we will also install handrails for the porch steps.
