I have what some might consider a slight obsession with porches. I photograph them wherever I go. Seriously. I make my husband pull over when I spot a good one so I can roll down the window and snap a picture. Here are some of my favorites that I photographed over the last year.
Remember my post about the Storybook Gardener’s Cottage? A few of these homes were taken in that same neighborhood in Ohio.
This was a new home built to blend into an older neighborhood:
After I posted a photo this house (below) earlier this year, I got an e-mail from a woman who said she grew up in there. She said she was thrilled to see that it seems to be so well-cared for by its current owners:
You can peek inside some beautiful old houses from this old neighborhood here.
Did you miss my tour of this yellow three-story home (below)? You can see it here:
You can take a tour of this pink painted lady here.
Do you have any favorites?
I hope you enjoyed this tour of some of my favorite front porches (all photos taken by moi). Want more? Check out one of my very first blog posts from the archives: In Praise of Porches.
P.S. Love the big front porches on older homes? The Plan Collection website features dozens of historic house plans so you can build a new house that has all the charm and character of one that’s been around a lot longer.
