My front door is hidden in a deep entry way. we also do not have a large front porch. I am interested in help with some ideas that will bring the front door forward or more welcoming and ideas on how to add a front porch. do we need to add a gable / shed roof. I realize that this will stop light from coming in. thinking of adding some sky lights to counter this. i want to some how eliminate those slanted support beams for something more transitional design. I hate those posts!!! I love my house just redid the kitchen and love my neighbors and school district. I'm not moving! please help with ideas.
