My parents have the most appealing farm house, but they built it from the ground up after the discovered the perfect piece of land they wanted to live on.
- The whole process took over a year, but it was a single of the best decisions they ever made.
They have just the right amount of space inside for an expanding family, plus a ton of room out back for greater family activities. Their new condo has become the place where my siblings plus I gather for all holidays, birthday parties, plus family breakfasts, and one of the best parts about their new farm house, is the wrap around porch. The front half of the porch is open, while the part on the side is screened in. The screened in part has 2 swinging benches, a dining table, plus a couple extra chairs for company. It’s the best place for entertaining plus relaxing. The screen porch is good for keeping the bugs away, but the two of us discovered that it was lacking something major: heating plus air! To make the porch more desirable while the two of us were in the hotter days, my parents installed 4 ceiling fans. These fans rotate counter-clockwise to push the cool air down. They make a large difference in keeping the porch cool. For the cooler seasons, they purchased a single portable space furnace that can be stored actually plus jammed in for extra warmth. These 2 minor changes, (overhead fans plus portable heater) have made my parent’s porch all the more desirable. The two of us never have to worry about it being too hot or too cool.
