Are You Ready to Live in an HOA Community?     All your life you have wished for a home of your own—with a lovely front porch, landscaped courtyard, huge kitchen, fireplace, and lots of windows and space.

From Wraparounds to Porticos, We Look at How to Choose the Perfect Porch for Your Home     From the farmhouse to Colonial, Victorian, and country homes of bygone eras, the porch has been a signature feature of the American home and the center of a family’s social activities.

The Arts and Crafts Home Style: A Revival of Traditional and Artistic Craftsmanship

This protest against the opulent Victorian Era and the machine-dominated Industrial Age revived interest in the simplicity and beauty of nature and the use of handicrafts and natural materials in architecture and art.     William Morris’s Read more
