Front Porch Appeal- Finding Love For Your Porch
Issue #64 February 2015February means spring is not too far away. Mary and I know it cannot come too soon for those of you who have been hammered with snow and ice recently.
Cold toes, wet gloves and hats laid out to dry with snow shovels propped next to your front door all signify that winter still has a grip on a lot of the nation. For those of us who don't live in snow country, our porches may be ready for some loving attention.
Whether covered in snow or basking in some warmer weather, now's the perfect time to add a little color to your porch along with continuing to embrace the winter's grasp that doesn't seem to be letting up for some.

We'll also cover a porch building technique as we know many of you are planning to either remodel or build a new porch this year.
For color, we'll share an easy Valentine porch project you can make and use for weeks to come.
We also give you a short synopsis of our latest podcasts which continue to be popular.
Bungalow Front Porch DesignsMary and I really like Arts and Crafts Bungalow homes - they have amazing porches, of course. Popular in the early 20th century, Arts and Crafts homes were built for their simplicity and used many local natural resources in their construction.
What may be surprising to some is the many different styles of bungalows; a few of which are shown below.
