Porches, Patios & Courtyards at Our 100 Year Old House

This is a sprawling old house, so there are a few porches, patios & courtyards at our 100 year old house. We even have a carport on the front. Some are original to the house, and some were added either by us or previous owners.

All of them needed fairly major work when we bought this place, and as we’re slowly working through each project outside, you can follow along, hopefully finding a few tips and some inspiration for your own house, so that you can enjoy your place too.
