Rediscover Sleeping Porches. Have you ever slept on a sleeping porch? But, If not, you owe it to yourself to experience the slumber of a Sleeping Porch. Sleeping porches were common for many of the homes in the South around the 1920’s. Gainesville Restoration and Remodeling can design and build a Sleeping Porch for you.
Rediscover Sleeping Porches
Sleeping porches were born out of the recent discovery of germs in the 1920’s. Because the sleeping porch offered a healthy and comfortable escape from the potentially germ-filled indoor air. Since, in the early 1900’s, tuberculosis was the number one cause of death; and fresh air was the best treatment for people suffering from this lung ailment. The population in the southern states discovered that by building a screened, private porch; they could enjoy the cooler summer nights rather than sleeping in a stuffy and warm bedroom. In addition, the sleeping porch provided cover from sudden summer thunderstorms. In addition, it was open on two or more sides to catch the evening breezes. These porches became an especially popular place for children to spend their summer nights.
Sleeping on your screened porch is becoming popular again as people seek to spend more time connecting with nature. Also, you can convert your screened porch to a sleeping porch with the simple addition of a bed. But, you don’t have a screened porch? Well then, let us build one for you!
