In preparation for my porch party on Tuesday, I thought I'd show you a couple of porches near my house.  Very few of the homes in my neighborhood have porches, so I drove to a neighborhood a couple of miles away.   In this neighborhood almost every home has a porch.  None of these homes are old.  They were built in the 1980s.

 This last one is in a different development.  They enlarged their existing porch and gave it this craftsman style look.  My husband likes this one because they have a flat screen TV which hangs from the ceiling!

Well that is just a preview of porches.  I don't know the people who live in these homes.  If I did I'd invite them to my porch party on Tuesday. 
But I do know you ... so you are all invited!

I will have the link ready for you to sign up at 5:00PM Monday.



  1. There is nothing more appealing to me than a porch on a house, wide sweeping porches with rockers and shade trees where families can gather and talk and enjoy each other. Glad you are sharing this with us.

  2. It was very interesting to read your blog and see the terraces. I also employ a lot of this issue, because ours is not finished yet. I am looking for a good terveket.Nagyon teraszunkat.Ha like rain, it is wonderful when the sun is shining, you can too.

  5. I can't wait for the porch party!!! I didn't have time to "decorate" for this year's event so I'll be highlighting a neighbor's porch!!!

  6. Wonderful NEW porches! Finally the porch has made a comeback; porches are priceless on houses.
    And I am SO joining your porch party on Tuesday ... our porch is undergoing a big transformation!

  7. Hi Rhondi,

    Oh goodness- I love porches. In Southern California we do not have many porches as the weather is so nice our yards are considered one big porch.
    Have a lovley day.
