The disappearing front porch

Just thinking, most homes today lack a key feature homes of 100 years ago focused on… the front porch.

The desire to maximize living space has led to flat front wall designs with no front yard gathering area. This design has led to less communal neighborhoods and rather bland sameness house to house. Many yearn for the wrap around porch with intricate personal touches. But surrender these for greater indoor living space.

Over the coming weeks I will be exploring how to bring back the front porch.  I hope to bring you all along with me on this exploration.
