What Houzz contributors are saying:

Running the full width of the house and about 10 feet deep, the spacious porch is the site of many impromptu evenings spent with guests. If there's a thunderstorm, the porch is where you'll find the Diehls.The pair, who love things with a backstory, are slowly learning about the history of their own home. While on a walk around town, they noticed that the bricks forming their home's foundation and fireplace surround were identical to the bricks used for the historic Old Carnegie Library in downtown Pickerington. Because both their house and the library were built in 1916, they think both structures' building materials arrived in the town at around the same time. At least, that's how they like to imagine it. "My husband and I always talk about a train pulling up to the station on our street packed with bricks destined for both the library and our house," Jen says. "It's neat to think about somehow being a part of something with a little history."
The Surprise ElementThis farmhouse's front porch hints at what's inside with three pastel chandeliers, pulling the eye in as it ups the home's curb appeal and quirk factor. A bright yellow kitchen and rooms filled with vintage treasures and thrift store finds await inside as the homeowners extend the quirky spirit of their porch throughout their house.

10. Jazz up your porch with pastel chandeliers. Why stick with traditional porch lights when you can have something so much more fun? Choose lights in a bright color (or two or three) and an unexpected shape, and your house will definitely stand out.More: Practical New Uses for 23 Old Things

Like the idea of a porch all the way across the front of this "barn." We could do something like that to add curb appeal and have a shady place to sit.
