Porch Porn

Of all the many failings our Bedford house has (many), the biggest thing missing is a big screened in porch. Or even any porch. We have a patio and in my mind, the two are very distinct and different. Yes?

I say yes. A patio is a serviceable area for BBQ.  Anyone can have a patio. But a porch is the rich cousin. Exalted. A porch presumes a view, is for having a cigar and a glass of port even though it’s raining outside, and for reading the Sunday paper without the wind ripping it out of your hand.

Of course, having this VIEW would be a sweet bonus to any porch. And who cares if it’s screened-in here?!

Hands down I’d like a porch, screened-in preferably, not necessarily with a fireplace or TV, but one overlooking the far hills or overlooking the water.

  1. Far too cold and foggy for porch sitting today but on Saturday I thoroughly enjoyed our screen porch as I had breakfast and read the news.

    1. Jealous. We don’t have any screened porch in RI either. Tonight we’re under the red and green of rain and thunder so a screened porch would get soaked. I think in reality I’d like one with floor to ceiling windows that can be changed into screens seasonally. Maybe that’s too much effort?

      1. The screens on my porch are removable. I take them out in late fall and put them back in the spring. Takes no time at all. My intention was to get glass inserts such as the ones in a screen door but I haven’t gotten that far. I did not want a sun room or a conservatory but a proper screen porch for six months of the year.
        The only reason not to use a covered or screen porch in the rain is the wind direction.

  2. Speaking of porn, not, what do you think of the democrats winning the entire budget fight? Republicans got squat.

      1. Charles Payne and his panel are hashing the budget out now. Payne is ballistic that the Rs let the Ds walk all over them. Ryan is a Dem.
