front porch in the french quarter, new orleans, louisiana. i think i’d give my left arm to have one of these homes. and i’d sit on the porch with my flowers and mardi gras beads and painted brackets all day. houses in new orleans were taxed based on some silly things, one of which is the number of doors. as a result, many houses have these very tall windows on the first and second floor that you can walk in and out of.
