The Upstairs Porch

The master bedroom has a little sunporch attached to it. Sometime in the late 1960s or early 1970s, somebody decided that this porch was horribly old-fashioned, so they updated it to fit the current styles.


Looking south on the porch, you get the full impact of the redecoration; It is panelled in board and batten siding, and everything that wasn’t panelled was painted a lovely avocado green. And, for that final touch of hipness, it’s got a little sink on the south wall so you can lock youself into the bedroom and wash dishes. Look carefully at this gem, because it’s going under the axe.

But the porch isn’t a total waste. When you look north, it’s actually kind of nice.
