Front Porch Pictures From HGTV Dream Home 2014

With its mix of modern, industrial and rustic elements, the front porch of HGTV Dream Home 2014 offers a glimpse of the modern mountain style within.

  • Front porch

    The front porch juts off of the home's foyer, which connects the public living space with the more private area housing the bedrooms and family room, and offers a glimpse of the New Mountain style found within the home.

  • Front porch-open door

    The front door sets the tone for the mix of materials seen inside the home. The rustic tongue-and-groove pine door, custom-built for the property, is accented with bands of black, industrial metal and a heavy-duty kick plate.

  • Front porch-open door-wide

    This porch not only makes a great first impression, it's also specifically designed to withstand the harsh winter elements. The flat central roof can withstand more than 8 feet of piled snow. Pairs of thick 4-by-8-inch wooden beams along with steel supports make this roof strong enough to \"park a freight train,\" says project contractor Mike Efstratis.

  • Detail-fountain

    A stacked-stone water feature, constructed of boulders unearthed during the building process, features a hidden underground pump for a clean, organic look.

  • Detail-front door

    Slate tile runs from the front porch through the foyer and into the outdoor kitchen on the back of the house, creating the feeling of one large, indoor-outdoor room.

  • Front porch-straight

    Large windows on either side of the door and at the rear of the foyer allow for views straight through to the backyard kitchen and the woods beyond.
