With frequent tropical rain in Haiku, HI, a client requested a small covered porch for the back entrance of the house. Porch is 24′ long and just over 5′ wide, providing ample coverage from the elements.
Some unique bracing on the existing house was a challenge for a clean roof attachment, but it came out well. Water and propane services needed to be rerouted to the side of the house.
A small table provides both a morning spot for breakfast or an evening Pau Hana after a day in the tropics.
The beginning of the column footing build is below.
The final result below.
