Treillage Porch on Dwarf Wall with Roof Frame
At Fine Iron all of our ironwork is made – to – order and we always work closely with our customers, ensuring good communication throughout to ensure that we meet your requirements, whatever they may be.
This private client wanted a wooden enclosed seating area within the porch – a place to sit and take off muddy boots after a long walk. The ironwork also needed to suit the cottagey feel of this home. Shortened uprights were purpose made to sit atop the dwarf wall and spandrels were used in all corners to create a softer arch – more traditional in style. The Treillage design ironwork looks fantastic finished in white, providing a bright and welcoming entrance.
The upright against the wall on deeper porches such as this gives a more symmetrical and balanced look.

Georgian Corner Porch & Covered Walkway
This corner porch was made using our Georgian design ironwork for a private client. The client chose our complete rolled roof and, due to limited space between the top of the door to the facia and roof we supplied a flatter version of this.
We are able to match any RAL no. paint, meaning you can tie the colour of your ironwork into the colours featured on your home, demonstrated perfectly here.
This client also wanted to create a covered walkway area so chose to use the same ironwork and colour for continuity and had a veranda with shortened uprights to sit atop an existing wall.
Deco Style Porch
Our Deco design was inspired by the Art Deco period, which itself took influence from the geometric forms of cubism as well as the unifying approach of Art Nouveau. It’s a versatile design that suits a wide range of property styles owing to the fact that it is decorative yet simple in design.
This porch makes a focal point of the entrance – giving it depth and prominence as well as improving the sense of balance with the windows which are set to one side of the property.
A beautiful and practical addition to this home, this porch will provide ample shelter when digging out keys – with the added bonus of creating a small guard house for the owner’s faithful companion!
