For extra security and wind protection.
A concern for security called for some alterations to this front porch. Elizabeth and Joseph Mish felt their front door was too far out of sight from the street and could invite prowlers, so they added an overhead framework of beams and posts that rise from the low porch wall. Between the posts, they installed 4-foot-high panels of tempered glass. At the front steps stand two 9-foot-high doors with safety glass; visitors now must stop here to ring the doorbell mounted outside the new doors.
