My name is Leigh and I am an empty nester who loves all things home. I love helping my friends, and exchanging ideas and ways to make our own homes places we want to share with others. My hope is that you might find some ideas to compliment your own interior design and outdoor spaces. If this is your first time visiting A Porch With A View I am so glad you found our little blog. It really started as a journal to building the screened porch of my dreams. So many of my friends wanted to know exactly how I went about building this addition to my home ie..finding plans, getting permits, obtaining materials etc. that I thought keeping a blog about it would be the easiest way to keep it documented. And from there I decided to use the blog as a way to help anyone that might be interested with everyday stuff from making store bought curtains look more custom made to renovating an outdated bathroom. I guess you could say it has turned into a home and garden lifestyle blog exploring all things home.So pull up a chair and enjoy a glass of iced tea. I am so glad you have come for a visit and please come back anytime.If you have any ideas of what you would like to see, please leave me a comment. Or just leave a comment to say Hi!
