I love porches - especially at the cabin! Favorite memories of a porch? Snuggling under a blanket while reading a book and listening to the loons on the lake or sipping some cold lemonade while a hot breeze blows by or sleeping on an old bed on the porch in the summertime because it's too hot to sleep inside or listening to the rain on the roof. Many wonderful memories still being made. A porch is a necessity.
