Proper Proportions

"The columns aren't out of place, but they're too tall and too spindly," Sarkesian says. To remedy the scale, he beefed up the columns and halved their height with a second-story porch that gives them purpose.

Replacing the original round columns with 1x12s over structural posts—either in cedar or a cellular PVC material such as Azek Trim—gives the facade a much more substantial look.
