2 story front porches

I am rebuilding 2-story front porches. I would like to enclose the second floor porch to add more room to the interior of the second floor. Any ideas what to do with the front of the porch?

I feel it may look boxy having a solid wall above an open porch.

Re: 2 story front porches

its been done, actually ive done this sort of thing in the past.

this will now be classified as an addition to the house as there will be new interior living space. you'll need an architect/engineer to draw up a plan

one issue you may find is that the floor is cold on this type of addition.
