Front porch architect/blueprints??

Looking for some serious help in tearing down/rebuilding a FRONT PORCH on a "pretty on the inside, UGLY on the outside" Rogers Park house.

Need to get Chicago legal designs that will pass the Chicago City requirements.

Help us make our ugly duckling into a swan... made of stucco.

Many thanks!

  • Andrew Carpenter Realtor Edgewater home owner and Chicago Reator

    If you PM me your phone # I have a couple of pictures of some fantastically styled awnings that you might be interested in incorporating into the design. I see lots of property and take pics of the best architectural details.

  • Hi there, did you ever find an architect/builder that you liked? We are trying to add a front porch to our house (currently have a small wooden uncovered porch) and I've been scouring everyblock for ideas!
