Our Craftsman series usually focuses on the Craftsman bungalows found in even the smallest of Mississippi towns. But you don’t need a whole house to show your Craftsman style–sometimes a great porch will do the trick. Maybe you didn’t even have a new house, but you could easily keep up with the fashions by building a Craftsman porch onto your old house. Maybe your old porch was getting rickety, or maybe you just couldn’t stand all those old-fashioned Victorian details, or maybe momma just wanted a bigger porch. Presto-chango, just put on a new Craftsman porch, easy as kiss my foot.
Yazoo City has some great examples of this phenomenon. I’ll bet your town does too, if you can spot them.
