A New Porch Enclosure in York
Although our main office is located in Maine, our company was founded in Massachusetts. Our home office is just a base of operations; we’re a service area company at heart, and to this day we conduct a majority of our business out of state in a region extending to The Bay State. The majority of our projects to date have been completed in Massachusetts, and we’ve also completed a great many projects in New Hampshire. That’s why we’re happy to present a project that we recently completed right here in York, Maine, close to our headquarters!
This project involved the addition of a new porch enclosure to a building near the coast. The addition provides shelter from the elements while preserving the location’s perfect view of the Atlantic Ocean. As always, our design team worked diligently to ensure that the design of the completed project blended seamlessly with that of the existing architecture. We think you’ll be as pleased with the results as the owner was, so let’s take a closer look at the construction sequence.

Every project begins with multiple architectural drawings.

Although the porch is covered, a portion of it will be enclosed as well.
Decking is being removed so that installation of the new carrying beam can proceed below.
New flashing is installed at the perimeter of the wall area.
Decking is re-installed so that it will appear undisturbed when the walls are completed.
The wall and roof framing of the enclosure is nearly complete.
The Sunspace Design crew continues work on the wall and roof.
The windows are being installed.
