Generations ago, the porch was the “living room” of the home. It was the social spot — a place to converse with neighbors, cool off in summer and watch kids as they played in the front yard.

Today, it is making a comeback as homeowners look to channel those relaxing olden days with sunrooms, front stoops and wraparounds. More

Greek Revival Remodel - Screened Porch

The big wall clock came from Frontgate but has not weathered well.
