PORCH LIKE A TEMPLE REBUILT
Reconstructing a historic porch roof—especially one supported by period columns, like this one—often requires shoring up with extensive scaffolding during repairs. Work underway on an 1899 Colonial Revival house included an authentic restoration of the entry porch, extending to both the Ionic porch columns and the historic balustrade atop the roof. The entablature was painstakingly rebuilt with all damaged or missing details, including a row of dentils and missing mouldings.
ABOVE & RIGHT A complete restoration by Full Circa of an elaborate Colonial Revival entry porch involved rebuilding the structure of the roof and its balustrade. The porch has internal gutters, which actually drain toward a leader on the right-hand side of the house.
