Standing the Test of Time, Farmer's Porches Offer Welcome Respite
A Farmer’s porches are always in style. Sometimes it is simply called a front porch, but a wide and narrow front porch extending across all or most of the home has traditionally been called a farmer’s porch.
Farmer’s porches were around long before the term “outdoor living spaces” became popular, but that is exactly what they were built for: living. The design harkens back to the days before air conditioning and television. When people were too warm, they retreated to the big front porch where a passing breeze could cool them. When they finished the day’s work, family members went out onto the porch to visit with each other and with neighbors passing by. A game of checkers, glasses of lemonade, and wide porch swings—all of these go together with the classic farmer’s porches of years ago. But they are right at home on today’s farmer’s porches as well.
