For just an unhurried moment, imagine having a porch and think of the time you'll enjoy spending on your porch. Envision the books you might read on your porch swing.

Hear the birds chattering in the trees and allow yourself a bit of personal time. Porches are good for the soul.

Learn from Our Ten Before and After Porch Case Studies

The background story on the Front Porch Ideas Generator:

Ten homeowners submitted photos of their homes to get our ideas for a porch. We enlisted the help of a landscape architect who came up with wonderful illustrations of how their porch and landscaping might look. The before and after pictures are in our eBook and will give you some great ideas.

While looking through our eBook, we hope it inspires ideas for your own porch. We don't want you finish your porch project and then say, "I wish I would have thought of that."

What You'll Find in the Front Porch Ideas Generator

  • In our book, we feature ten homes whose homeowners would love a porch. We show you these homes "before" pictures.
  • Then we show you conceptual "after pictures" that an architect drew up of how their homes would look with a new porch. And wow, what a nice difference in each of these homes.
  • You'll see not only welcoming porches but also the porch steps, walkways, roofs, and landscaping too. Things you maybe haven't considered in your porch planning.
  • See examples of steps, walkways, roofs and landscaping before you start your porch project
  • Save yourself from disappointment by seeing the possibilities for your own porch.
  • Our ebook can help you think through things and feel more confident in your porch planning.
