    I recently built a porch on my hideaway. Been wanting to do this for some time finally got it done.

    needed a stool for the porch so I scrounged up some junk from the barn and put this one together.

    Looks nice. I love this style. I hope to have something similar one day, nestled back on several acres in the woods of east TN with a year around creek running nearby.

    Very nice place to spend time, porches seem to be a lost art in many places.

    That really looks great. I love the style.
    I put a wrap around porch on 2 sides of our place when we built it, and it's one of the best things about the place.
    Makes life a lot easier in many ways!

    Very beautiful place, and nice work. There's something comforting about having a roof over your head. I think you will really like that porch.
