As you may remember, we’ve considered a pergola to replace our front porch. However, it wouldn’t provide any protection for someone if they were standing at our front door for some reason. (I don’t know who this person is but I feel for them if it’s raining.) I still love pergolas and I will gladly put one somewhere, but one wasn’t right for the front porch. It didn’t fit our style of house or the traditional look we’re aiming for. So, I’ve decided an awning is the answer. I will now present to you my inspirational photos:
Sadly, The Metal Shoppe is nowhere near here and I stumbled across these on their site during a late Google dig. Here is another angle with my notes.
I’m very technical with my notes.
We currently have metal awnings on the side and across the back of our house. However, I’m not trying to match that style. I’ll keep the ones on the back of the house and hopefully, if budget allows, replace the ones on the side with the style matching the front porch. Currently, I’m waiting on two quotes from metal roofing companies on getting this big (8 feet wide and 2.5 feet deep) awning made and installed. So far I’ve received one quote for it to be in copper and I was pleasantly surprised.
Have a wonderful weekend! I’m in a 5K tomorrow. Notice I didn’t say “running” a 5K. It’ll be a walk and run for this gal. I’m practicing for one in October that I have every intention of running. Then, after the 5K, I’m rushing home to clean up as I have the Wing Fling. You should come. I’ll take photos.
