    New Buyer? Don't be scared! 4 steps towards making your dream a reality.

    I considered myself quite an expert on porch-life.  That was until I moved to Aiken, South Carolina!  I was quickly schooled on the proper way to design, decorate, and enjoy a true Southern Porch!  There is an art to creating the harmonious blend of sensations, only found in the south.  As we approach Spring, it made me want to share some great articles I’ve come across concerning true Porch-Life!
