Porches… Adding More Living Space To Your Home

Living in the South, we love our porches.  A place to swing, dream, read, talk to friends, and enjoy a glass of wine or lemonade. If you are selling a home with a porch, stage your porch.  Add furniture and plants to add value to your porch and add more living space.
