This oak framed porch creates a sheltered entrance to this home in Yorkshire. Our brief was to create a beautiful and traditional entrance to the house, giving the large front elevation character and a focal point.
A New but Traditional Addition
This oak framed porch features king post trusses, with traditionally pegged joints. A reclaimed stone roof and cast iron rainwater goods ensure that this new addition is in keeping with the existing house. Despite being a new addition it immediately sits comfortably within the context of this traditional stone Yorkshire Dales barn conversion.
Creating an Entrance
The entrance to your home is arguably the most important part of it. You use it daily, and it is the place that welcomes you home each day. It houses shoes and coats, shelters you from the rain, and protects the rest of your home from muddy shoes and bad weather.
Adding a porch, either enclosed or open, can hugely improve a home. Entrance halls are often neglected, with a combination of stairs and storage squeezed into a small space.
This timber framed canopy porch is open to the elements, ideal for wellies and drying wet coats. But if that isn’t suitable for your home, there are lots of other options we can chat through, including enclosed and glazed porches.
The average porch project takes 1-2 weeks to complete. If you’re keen to create a warm and welcoming oak-framed entrance to your home, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Jonny is on 07985410476.
