Our Site is a Labor of Love

As Dave and I have looked at homes over the years and strolled through neighborhoods, we have always been drawn to charming front porches. We've lived in homes with big porches, small porches and no porch (sad!).

We once purchased a home just because it had a screened porch. And that was a terrific decision.

Dave and I use our passion to bring you the best porch decorating and design ideas for your front porch.

We hope that our front porch designs, decorating and entertaining ideas will help you whether you have a front porch, side porch, or a great back porch!


You will find many front porch designs and porch pictures throughout our site.

Our front porch pictures will help you visualize and plan your projects.
Thinking of building or renovating a porch? From stone columns to renovating to building a new porch from scratch we have photo gallery pictorials to show you how it is done.

Share your porch pictures with us!
