Entry-stoop design tips

Image excerpt from Fine Homebuilding Drawing Board column about entry stoopsPick up the December 2010/January 2011 issue of Fine Homebuilding to see my latest "Drawing Board" column titled "Problem-solving entry stoops". 

In it, I illustrate both lower and taller stoops, a few with limited access, and one ideal (illustrated to the left) which includes porch-like, built-in seating. No matter your home's style, a thoughtfully designed entry-stoop can make a positive first impression.
