The front porch will receive Craftsman style columns with stone bases. I’ve taken a real picture of the farmhouse and rendered in the five columns.
The bases will be 30" x 30" x 32" (W x D x H) and the columns will be 6′ tall square tapered with a 16-1/2" cap and a 21-1/2" foot.
The stone bases will be made from the same paver stones used for the patio-porch.
On paper the bases sound massive but given the proportions of the farmhouse, they do not look out of place.
… and yes, there is enough space at the top of the bases for a coffee cup … or to put your feet up !
