I do not live in a house, but a super-tiny studio, as in a 9X14 room. No house I lived in ever had a porch. Those who live in an actual house and have a porch or deck don't know how lucky they are...!

we have a good sized porch but I wouldn't say it's large

No. I'm planning on rebuilding the porch next summer. I want to make it bigger, with room for some porch chairs, and maybe with a little roof

We have an adequate porch, but not like the large farm style porch.

It's kind of small, but it's got the gas and electric meters in there. My dad's is larger but also really ugly, so he dresses it up with pot plants and stuff.

Edit: Ha, totally forgot about the difference between English/American 'porches'...

One day a blonde comes up to a man's door and asks him if he needs any help around the house.
"could you paint the porch for me? All of the materials are in my garage."
"I'll charge $50."
so she goes to work, and the guy's wife says "does she know the porch goes around the entire house?" "I don't know." After 30 minutes, the blonde comes back, and tells the man she is done.
"Wow, that was fast!"
"yeah, I know. But that wasnt a porch. It was a Ferrari."

sorta kinda?............ not in the true sense, but I have a largish "front Patio" which we covered and tiled, with a nice table and chairs, with fish tank- You walk "through" it to get to the front door to get in the house?

we have a porch and a deck. the porch is big enough for two comfy chairs and a table, plus a third chair not so comfy. Big enough for us, and screened-in which is delightful.

No. We have a small front porch (big enough for a few plants, but no chairs or benches). The back has a deck, not a porch.

No. I live in an apartment. Upstairs.

My last house did. Large front porch with brick floor, white post railings. Never sat out there much. It was nice for decorating for Halloween and Christmas. Could have stuff set up that wasn't supposed to get wet when it rains.

Now we don't even have a canopy over the front door and the house is on a slab at grade level.

I wouldn't say it's large. It's long and narrow. Kind of useless. I have this urge to keep planters on the edge to keep people from accidentally falling off the edge. Which makes it narrower. I used to have a wicker couch on it and I would snooze out there, that was nice. I'd love to screen it in and make it a southern type design, that would rock.

Nope my home has a small porch

Its long and narrow.The front of the porch is all glass windows ( floor to ceiling) Theres a glass door at each end of the porch, that go outside. the floor is cement with small smooth rocks in the cement, like cobblestone.

No, my house doesn't have a porch at all. There's a porch-like extension at the back but it has my kitchen in it, so I wouldn't class it as a porch (though it may originally have been one).

The house I am at right now has a huge porch. I am in the hammock at one end, and it's so long that I can't see the hottub at the other end.
