I liked a lot of these, but I might be a little too practical for some. The porch that had nothing but a swing-bed…I love a nap better than anybody, but I wouldn’t sacrifice a great space for it. I liked that some looked just as beautiful as the greatest living room, gorgeous! But a lot had huge fireplaces! What does that do to the cost of the renovation? A bunch, I might imagine.
These were really nice tho.
