Wrap Around Porch
What says a Southern home more than a wraparound porch? You will be making the most of your outdoor space. This is a perfect spot for entertaining friends, and family. Relaxing here after a long day of work, the absolute best place to watch your children play in the yard, and have some great conversations. A nice porch swing will make this area even more special, and inviting. The option to screen in the porch is also a possibility if you choose, it is the best way to keep out those pesky bugs.
When you think of an old or new Southern home you think of the small details that make a huge impact. Beautiful crown molding that really sets the rooms apart from other homes. Built ins that are just the right amount of character to make it unique. Built ins can either be made to look vintage with the home, or updated depending on the style of your home.
