Well....I'm keeping my fingers crossed. We just submitted an outline for the new front porch and the rear addition. We decided to make it just a little bit bigger than what we first wanted. Unfortunately, I think we will need a variance for the front and the back since my neighbors property line is only 3 ft. away. The top pic. shows how the house once looked. The bottom shows how we would like it to look now. We opted for an open porch. We plan on closing in the deck on the back, and just putting up screen. I guess we'll see what the future holds.
