Exterior Porch to Interior Space

We just completed a porch conversion in Stoneleigh; some pictures are below, check out our website ( or newsletter for more images. Enclosing a porch can be a simple, cost-effective way to gain the extra living space you need.  You can gain space without eliminating the yard and often a portion of the structural work is already in place.  Side or rear porches can be easily converted into a home office, playroom, or den/family rooms.  Enclosed porches are also ideal for adding space to extend your kitchen.  The porch’s location, its wall and floor materials, and the condition of the existing foundation will influence the ease or difficulty of modifying a porch.  The next blog will review some important considerations in designing and building a new room using an existing porch.
