Drainage is an important aspect of all projects. The existing porch for this project was sinking and disconnected from the house due to poor drainage and footing design. We redesigned the entry experience to accommodate for extra parking that was needed. There is over 10 feet of elevation change in this property in southern Louisiana which is uncommon. The grade and elevations at this site proved to be challenging. The front entry has a small terrace for seating and orients the visitors immediately upon arrival. This terrace and stairway is protruding from the nearby sloped driveway.
This project is located in Mandeville, LA.
