Designers wanted to create a traditional, shingle style summer home for the family in Jamestown, Rhode Island. Since the home sits on a rectangular, corner lot, they needed to address both sides of the street, so they added an oversized porch to the front of the home as a nod to the summer cottages that dotted the coastline at the turn of the century. To address the other side of the street, a smaller garage was built. This space adds storage to the home as well as adds a pleasant aesthetic to the home.
