Craftsman Porch

On one of Bloomington’s most beautiful and livable streets, the existing house lacked a welcoming face.  The design response, a new front porch, required a front yard setback variance.  The neighbors were supportive and the City approved.

During construction each family member picked a favorite animal whose image was carved by a local stone carver.  Those limestone carvings were set into the columns and now animate the porch and welcome visitors.
