This old house can be quite uncomfortable at times. In its current state is doesn’t accommodate large groups of people very well and entertaining guests with a table and 3 chairs can be, well, humorous to say the least. However, the front porch is perfect.
It’s our refuge after a long day of yard work. It’s a much needed sunny spot to enjoy lunch (after spending 5 hours in front of the computer). And you’re almost always guaranteed a gentle breeze when resting there. The front porch is our place to celebrate, entertain, and relax. The other evening we did all three. We celebrated the recent engagement of my sister and her fiancé Kyle Kielman, we asked Ricky T to join us for dinner at the last minute (because we ALWAYS have too much food) and we all relaxed while sharing a pitcher of simple sangria.
So, while remodeling an old house has its challenges, it also has its rewards. Had our dining room been something besides our current master bedroom, we might never have found the pleasure of our front porch. Right?
