Example 2

This large sun deck replaced a much smaller entry porch. It was constructed to be stylistically consistent with the architecture of the residence. A century ago few, if any, homes featured sun decks. In a sense, our Company’s design is an architectural fiction. This is how a sun deck on a classic revival mansion might have appeared.
