A Victorian Porch Wins Our Outdoor Project Contest!comments (1) June 12th, 2010 in Blogs
Congratulations to Cliff Audet of Forestdale, Vermont!
Cliff won our Break Out of the Indoors gallery challenge with this beautiful Queen Anne style porch.
With the help of his own company Three Oaks Construction, Cliff built this to replace an original porch that was rotted beyond repair. Though he stayed true to the style in his decorative details, Cliff also seamlessly adapted new features that fit his own needs — like removable screen panels that adapt the space to the seasons, and an inset metal grate that stops dirt at the front door.
Read Cliff's full post about the porch in the project gallery.
