Our entry is for a project we did on a SE Portland bungalow. The home is charming with many original features and a lovely wraparound porch. However, it sits on a busy street so enjoying the porch was challenging. We worked with the homeowner to recapture the living space and reduce the noise by enclosing the porch. Using Marvin’s Integrity Wood Ultrex windows with a full divided lite we enclosed the porch using picture windows and casements that allow summer breezes to cool the space. Our craftsmen carpenters finished it off by adding interior and exterior casing to the windows and base making the new space look original to the home. The new porch is being used as intended, complete with a porch swing - a perfect quiet area for their children to play and watch the world go by.
Many cool projects from across the country are entered in the contest. We are proud to represent the great city of Portland, Oregon in this prestigious national award.
Stay tuned - we will be asking for your vote in the People’s Choice Award in August!
