Canada & Klein owner Jeff Cohen says adding a screened porch on an inside corner of this residence called for a "highly detailed, sophisticated" approach because second-floor windows dictated how high the addition could go. Steel and iron collar ties hold the 465-square-foot porch's cedar shingle roof together. A brass roof extension connects the porch to the home and stylishly complements the copper downspouts.
The porch's central feature is a wood-burning fireplace with an antique-looking brass screen. Custom-ordered limestone was used for the fireplace and its lintel to match a lintel in the home. In addition, the porch is wired for electricity.
This six-month project cost $175,000.
