Front Porch Design Dilemma... Need Help!!

5 years ago
last modified: 5 years ago

Our house is almost around finishing. I recently noticed the beam at the front porch was left unattended. I contacted our builder he said he will pain it white to match the soffit and other exterior trim.

I was hoping to have all brick wrap at the front but the builder is saying he cannot do brick at beams as bricks require a foundation support (called a “brick ledge” ) . Unfortunately it isn’t possible!!

Any thoughts? Do you agree with my builder.

I am so confused right now and keep thinking how it will look with the paint.

PS: The house has bricks only at front

Another picture to show that beams are on 3 sides:
