Southern Porch Living

This Raleigh home near Cameron Village is in a great location. To make it even better, the homeowners needed more room plus outdoor living space for their growing family. Wood Wise designer Kathy Walker offered design options for their consideration. They chose an addition with a bonus room, bedroom, bathroom, and laundry room on the second floor with a large open porch on the first floor. The wide center steps on the porch lead to the back yard for easy access. Board and batten siding with black metal railings and hardwood flooring on the porch below give this addition its southern flavor.
