Do You Have a Front Porch?

When I lived in New Orleans, one of the most relaxing parts of my evening was spending some time on the front porch after the sun went down. I also think that porches create good neighbors; I was always chatting with passersby when I'd hang out on my front porch.

no - i would love a porch! this is definitely an american thing. you don't see houses like this in the uk. always wanted one- inspired by gilmore girls, back to the future and desperate housewives! :) i do have a lovely garden though with a patio which is nice to sit out on and look over the rolling hills and fields at the back of the house x

We have a front porch (about 8' wide by 25' long - it's great) and a back patio area that we put in last summer. Sitting on the front porch in our comfy chairs with a cup of coffee or a magazine is one of my favorite things. I sat in the back last night, since the weather was beatuiful, and read my magazine. The trees next to it are tall, the greenery around is lush & my hibiscus are just starting to bloom. I love being outside! And when there is a cool breeze on a warm day, or warm sun on a cool day, I could be outside all day.

I wish I had a house so I could sit on my porch and talk to my neighbors but I live in an apartment and all the neighbors are sooo uptight

I'm on a stacked townhouse condo complex. Luckily my unit is on top so which means I have a rooftop deck.
