Macomb County Michigan covered porch project, adds shade to a sunny patio.

Hello ... today we are going to review a covered porch project in Shelby Township MI.

  In this project we are adding a roof over an existing stamped concrete patio to create a shaded area for our customer. The layout of the home is a typical one we see all the time, where the door wall leading to the backyard is off the kitchen nook which is a cantilevered bay.

Here is the before picture... notice how much sun they get on their patio with this southern exposure, the new stamped concrete patio color has already faded out. The solution was to add a covered roof to this patio.

 Again this home has a common layout 14' wide kitchen leading out to the backyard through a dining nook area. Basically what we are going to do is extend the roof line of the bay, over the patio to create the covered space. The roof projection is about 18' for a 14' x 18' covered patio.

We matched the existing construction and materials to home, so it would look like it belonged on the house.
The only thing we could not match was the brick on the columns. The tongue and groove cedar ceiling adds some warmth to the space. We installed  a center ceiling fan with a light for warm nights and soffit lighting to set a nice mood and show off the porch at night.

Here are some final pictures of this Macomb county MI covered patio project.
