January is the perfect month to start planning your spring and summer projects. It's time to get ideas and start nailing down
exactly what type of porch you'd like on a new home or if you are remodeling your exisiting porch, what improvements you want to make.
Or, perhaps you are planning
a new screened room or three-seaon porch that you've been wanting for so long.
We are a great place to start.
New House Plans With Porches
It's always fun to look at new home plans whether you are looking for one to build or just to see new trends and designs. We love ones with porches
of course. We've found some that have accompanying videos that give you a wider perspective of the plan details.
Here's a short video of one of the home plans Mary and I really like; hope you enjoy it to.
January and February are really good months to start lining up contractors to build your porch, screen porch, or other home project. Not sure exactly sure
of the specifics for your project? A good contractor can work with you to give you ideas, show you where you can save money, and help to finalize your plan in addition
to providing an estimate for the work.
We recommend you get at least three estimates - we can help.
Yes, you can decorate your porch for the winter months. Adding a bit of color or creating a magical scene can add lots of appeal during
the winter months. Find lots of ideas in our winter porch decorating section.

Unfortunately, both our granddog Cisco and his longtime girlfriend Rua, passed away in 2017. I made a porch enclosure for Cisco so he could sit outside
of his front door while living in California. I'm sure he appreciated my efforts; however, he always chose to lay on the carpet just inside the door instead.
A smart dog indeed!
Our Granddog Cisco And His Girlfriend Rua. They loved playing together and both lived long happy
lives. They will be missed.
On a happier note, we have a new granddog, Blue. He's quite the pup, has blue eyes, is pretty smart, loves to cuddle, and is growing fast.
Blue even has a favorite chair on which to snooze!(And he's becoming good friends with a cute little dog down the street!)
