8 Ideas for a Stylish Front Porch

Front_Porch_Inspiration

The first two houses I owned didn’t have porches. They were Victorian red-brick terraced houses with small front gardens and the absence of a porch meant that occasionally, we had to stand in the pouring rain while struggling with a key and shopping as we tried to open the front door as quickly as possible. That was the main disadvantage of not having a porch – there being no shelter from the elements when the weather is horrible.

Porches have many more advantages of course, depending on their size and shape. They offer more storage, a place to put those items frequently required for outdoor use such as boots and coats, they protect the front hall from harsh weather and prevent draughts, and they can make the front of your home look more attractive.

9 Ways to Conserve Water

9 Ways to Conserve WaterThe current heatwave and drought is making us all rethink our use of water. The hosepipe ban has been in operation for a couple of weeks. Water is being restricted in some areas at night. Farmers and rural dwellers are reporting of their private wells going dry or having reduced water pressure. Given that we had an incredibly wet March and April this year, it does seem surprising that the country is short of water but that is the case.

This may not be a ‘once in a generation’ drought. With climate change occurring, this may happen more often. Some of my suggestions for conserving water are structural, designed for long-term planning, others are habit-forming and maybe you will continue them even when water is more plentiful.
