For this house on a double lot, the clients came to us requesting better access to the beautiful garden they had cultivated on the south side of their home. We removed a side porch that blocked the view of the garden, replacing it with a sun room with a cathedral ceiling. The new configuration shifts the space to the west, affording the kitchen a view of the garden. A gracious stair leads from the generous trellis-covered porch to the garden. The porch is accessed from either the sun room or the dining room. The heaters in the trellis extend the use of the porch from early spring into late fall.
