Home » New Custom Porch Build in Berks County PA
Completed in 2013, this project was one of our most rewarding builds. With a deck already existing, our talented team removed the railing and installed an all new one. After also creating a privacy wall, we used a custom post and beam style with the braces and wooden pegs to create a homey and rustic atmosphere. T/G pine boards were used to expose the ceiling, showcasing the beautiful craftsmanship. As finishing touches were finalized, this space turned into a perfect place to sip your morning coffee, or mingle with friends in the evening.
This involved removing our present roof entirely, building a knee-wall raising the height of the house one-foot and then building a new roof six-feet higher than the old roof. Building dormers in the roof they were able to construct five rooms, adding a new floor to our house. I was very impressed with the engineering and use of pre-fabricated beams to construct the new floor on the house. Mike Smucker led the construction with a regular crew of six skilled workers. Very dependable they always arrived on time and it was a pleasure to watch them work. The result is a beautiful home.
