This traditional porch near Palmetto Beach, South Carolina, employs coastal-style architecture to give this new home old Southern charm with shutters that reach all the way to the ceiling. The folding shutters can be opened to let in light and air or closed for more privacy. The slats can be adjusted to let air circulate. (Photo: Laurey W. Glenn)
really nice. love the details in the open gable, but its openness along with the fact that it covers a very shallow porch defeat the purpose of a covered entry, in my humble opinion. Gable and porch could be extended out, but this would obscure the view of the details, so how about we just close it?
