Description:We have a lovely cottage lakehouse that is lacking a covered back porch. The house appears very flat and it needs character. We will only cover the back from windows 1 to 3 to include the glass door. The remaining two windows to the left will not be covered. The porch should extend the length of the deck and follow the line of the deck as it is right on the property line. We can either go through the planters or move them if we need to. The planters allow for a set back of 22 to 24 inches to allow for a proper eave.
I have a contractor that can build from sight or plans.
Must have metal roof.
I will attach a few photos of porches that I like to the last two spots.
Wants:It must look like it is part of the house and not an addition.
Don't Wants:We can't block the view.
It can slope straight down.
- I am unfamiliar with what to use
Additional InformationMy description needs to read "width" of deck instead length.
Also, The porch CAN'T slope straight down!
#7 Porch Addition With Second Level Sundeck by d_losinski
I extended the second floor balcony to wrap around the front of the house; the balcony expands at the right to create an open sun deck that mimics the shape of the deck below. This addition allows an excellent private spot for sun bathing, an opportunity for multi-level outdoor entertaining. The transition allows the roof edge to follow the deck line below and makes the addition feel like part of the original house design. Thank you for considering my design.
#8 Porch addition by d_losinski
The porch addition's roof line follows the existing roof line. I held the addition roof back from the edge of the deck to avoid the awkwardness of the two angles competing for dominance. As designed, the addition roof line has a direct correlation to the existing roof while allowing the deck line to exist separately. The end result should be an addition that works naturally with both the existing house and the existing deck. Thank you for considering this design.

iPhone Audio Accessory - Music Booster
This product provides an added volume boost to iPhones. Ultimately, we'd like to create an audio booster accessory that plugs directly into an iPhone. You would then be able to plug your headphones into this accessory so you can listen to your music at louder levels. We'd like to have it so you can control the volume/bass/treble levels through a mobile app. If not, then it could be something like this FiiO product (http://fiio.net/en/products/53) but wireless. It would also be similar to this product, but also wireless. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1746450443/uamp-soul-shaking-audio-for-your-ears/description No firm dimensions. At most, it would be as wide as the iPhone itself. Design should look like something Apple would have designed. Something sleek. For colors, use the same colors as the iPhone 6S. There needs to be a Power button, Vol+ button, Vol- button, and either a battery indicator or battery light.
