Adding a portico to my home

2 months ago

We would like to add a portico to our home, so visitors don't stand in the rain and packages don't get wet. Given the strong horizontal line of the roof, my sense is that a visually flat portico roofline would be the right idea (not really flat, I know it has to shed water). But I'm not a pro and my project is too small to get an architect interested, so I'd love to get some feedback.

Here's the front of my house. We are thinking of a portico that goes about halfway to the windows around the front door, held up by 2 square columns with a brick base (I don't like round columns for some reason)

What do you think?
