Welcome to Porchology 101

Short Videos to Answer Porch Questions

Welcome to our Porch University.

Our course, Porchology 101, is designed to provide you, the porch lover, with insightful information you can use for your porch and yard.



Mary and I, in response to the myriad of questions we receive about porches and as self-appointed Porch Professors, created Porchology 101.

Unlike other classes, ours is free and you don't have to register, pay for books, arrive on time, or take notes. There are no tests so you don't have to study either!

We hope you enjoy our short informational videos and invite you to begin by watching our introductory video below.
