A screened-in porch, also known as a 'sleeping porch'.  What is it about a crisp, clean room, with sheer curtains moving with the breezes that I love so much?

To create an old-fashioned sleeping porch, simply swap the settee for a cot or daybed, such as this vintage version scavenged and refinished by homeowner and designer Joy Waltmire. Protect the mattress by zipping it into a waterproof vinyl cover. | Photo: Mark Lohman

Its a traditional sleeping porch! If I ever build a house, I will have one of these for spring, summer, and fall. Its attached to your bedroom (and screened in) and has an extra bed or cot for sleeping on those nice nights when you just want to feel the breeze, hear the crickets, and see the stars....(sigh)
