Rain Porches And Mermaid Cottages

Rain Porches and Mermaid Cottages go together like cottage charm and coastal calm. The slanted roofs that hang out over them do serve a purpose.  They help protect our happy little homes by the sea from wind and rain and their designs help the overhangs adjust to the dampness and the humidity. No matter their functional aspects, it’s the very calming and romantic serenades they produce with the rain that makes them so desirable and enjoyable.  Porches with ceiling fans and screened additions help extend our porch-sitting season and when these roofs shield us from the wind and direct the rain away from our rockers and swings the tunings of the rainfall delight and enchant. These are some of our favorite rain porches and mermaid cottages.  Have you enjoyed rainy days during your Tybee Island visit?
