The picture on top is from one of your Harding neighbors in Chatham showing a beautiful front-door entry and front foyer.  This front porch combined with stone work, roof overhang, and railings completely changes the look of this home. The hardscaping ties nicely into the stone columns. The porch creates much more exterior living space and adds an additional dimension to a home beyond simple vertical massing.

The image that follows is of a complete demolition of an existing house. The foundation remained in place, then we added 2 courses of block to create a more useful basement ceiling height.  The 1st floor was increased in size including wrap around front porch. The 2nd floor increased in size matching the footprint the 1st floor.  And the following shows a front entryway was part of a whole home remodeling project. This portico is completely new including the new masonry front stoop. All new siding, exterior trim, and shutters rounded out the exterior work.
