    this is a side of houses i rarely see! i think these back porches are just gorgeous–the perfect summer hideaways.

    i'd never thought of how cool back porches are, but after these pictures I definitely want one.

    I want one of those! I love the squares of lattice and the gingerbread pieces. So summery and fun. xo

    These are beautiful homes. How lucky to live in such a sweet neighborhood! I have a porch, and it is a lovely spot to relax, read, and possibly get a tan!

    the two story porches are so neat. i love old house in the east and south with all of the old additions…we don't really have that here much in the west.

    I have to have one when I migrate back down south. Also, your downtown is very neighborhoody.

    Would love to grab a pillow, my most comfy blanket a book, and Hermie, then fall asleep on one of those porches. šŸ™‚

    So beautiful. Piled on top of one another, these perspectives are even more interesting. You've even managed to make peeling paint look pretty!

    so interesting! I didn't know those are sleeping porches. I've heard of the term before – thanks!

    This might be my favorite yet! I have always been fascinated by these.

    if i ever have a home of my own, i MUST have a porch (and a clawfoot tub, but that's another matter altogether).
