Porch rules have most likely been in place since the first Porch was built. The first time a front Porch overtly appeared in the modern world was in Ancient Greece and Rome. The “Porticus iustificationes” latin for “porch regulations” prominently displayed 4 main rules that the social class must adhere to while visiting a Porch. 1. Be nice. 2. Keep your toga on. 3. Don’t spill your wine. 4. Don’t talk to politicians.
This may not be entirely historically accurate but it does make good sense and loosely translated, it does serve well as a foundation for today’s Porch Rules. There are many sets of rules out there. We feel Porch rules should be tailored to fit your personality, lifestyle and your Porch. It’s about community standards.
We have put together a list that seems to work well for us and most folks. The following list of Porch Rules are really guidelines more or less. Please don’t try to complete all of these in 1 day. That might be a bit much. Try to spread it out over a couple or 3 days or perhaps even 365 days. Are we missing any? Let us know and we’ll add ’em to the list.
