NOVEL SLEEPING PORCH (May, 1929)

NOVEL SLEEPING PORCH

MANY families would like to have a sleeping porch on their home if the cost of remodeling wasn’t so expensive. A German architect recently designed a method of attaching a sleeping porch without the usual wall removing activities.

This design calls for two brackets which are attached to the wall below a window, . which operation does not call for any mutilation of the wall. The porch can then be built upon these brackets. The architect drew up the plans so that the porch could be assembled upon the ground and hoisted into position. The window must then be enlarged to make a door way. This is the only part of the construction that calls for remodeling. Since the window is already nearly large enough, this fact does not entail much labor.

    So this is what they did before AC.

    I’ve wanted to do this on the back of my house for years, but I’d want it supported by an enlarged porch off the kitchen. Of course, I’d probably want at least a sonar-controlled water cannon to discourage the local raccoons, opossums, and cats from disturbing my sleep.
