No subby, that's not a porch. That's a hoarder's storage unit with windows and a screen door.

Enclosing porches usually doesn't involve any paper from the city/county.

Yep. My garage pretty much looks like that, too. Thank goodness my neighborhood doesn't have the 'cars can't park in the driveway' rule that some HOA neighborhoods do. Everybody on my street would be in trouble.

actually it appears that it is a 'side' porch, as it is NOT located on the 'front' of the abode.

also, it appears that it started as porch, then became an enclosed porch, then had another porch built outside the enclosed porch, then they also enclosed that porch... so it's like a double-wide enclosed side porch/storage area with multiple entry points.

also, Marci Cipriani seems to be upset about the penis. or something.

Maybe if cops would stop being such horrible people they wouldn't be hated as much.  If this guy were forced to wear a uniform camera he wouldn't have randomly assaulted a 13 year old just because he was itching to try out his pepper-sprayer.

Is it wrong that I would have rather he maced the truant kid instead of his claim he was macing cats?


and if it is an enclosed porch, wouldn't the cats probably be his? AND with no way to get away (nor a flushing station,I'd presume) wouldn't it be animal cruelty?
 
2013-12-31 11:53:35 AM  
FTA- Boatright found the teen still in bed when he was supposed to be in school, so he discharged his pepper spray in to the bedroom.

So, he's sprayed the kid before this and the mother continues to date him; nice. Spraying cats with pepper spray is considered animal cruelty but PA is a weird place and maybe it is acceptable practice there.

wait, I might have been wrong... there is something that might be an enclosed 'front' porch on the front of the house... but I don't see a door... making it fairly useless as a 'porch'... and on closer inspection of the 'double-wide enclosed side porches'... now I'm thinking that area started out as a 'carport'... but then they enclosed the half of the carport closest to the house... and then at a later date, enclosed the half furthest from the house.... and then proceeded to fill them both with piles of junk.

Also, is that above ground pool in the back yard being used as some kind of private water tower to supply the house with additional water pressure?  and where will the water go if the above ground pool ever loses structural integrity?

Marci, however, is very upset about the penis.

Enlighten me. As someone who is probably polar opposite of a hoarder (If I haven't seen it or used it in the last 6 months, out it goes) what is the mindset of a hoarder? I know it's a mental illness, but what is the need to collect and hold on to tons of crap? Really curious.

My aunt suffered from it (still does, but haven't had much contact). It's the unending desire to keep everything on the off chance you might need or use it again. You throw stuff away after not using it for 6 months, they still believe they can use it after 25 years.

Best part: "Police said that the boy knew he had been pepper-sprayed because Boatright had pepper-sprayed him before."

This means the other cops are sick of him giving them a bad reputation and have turned him out without pay. Hopefully this is a trend that will continue on a larger scale.

Not wrong at all. Always go with your first instinct. Having dated a few crazy single mothers of teenagers I wouldn't say its a far stretch to think the kid may have sprayed the room himself just to get the cop in trouble. You know, the whole "you're not my Dad" bullshiat that we have all had to face. That's right, kid. Im not your father, however I did try to love, care for, and protect you and your crazy Mom but you just made it too hard. You win. Enjoy the long string of deadbeats about to enter your life because your selfishness drove away the last decent man your Mother is ever going to meet.   Also, teenaged girls are much worse to try and get along with. My advice to other men in that situation is stay as far away from them as possible. Never and I mean NEVER be alone with them for more than a minute. Don't drive them to swimming lessons alone, don't pick them up from school. Stay out of their lives entirely. They see you as a threat to their ability to manipulate their Mothers into getting what they want and if you confirm that somehow in their selfish little heads they will do anything to make you pay.
 
2013-12-31 12:07:45 PM  
ok, after further researching this... no that is NOT a porch.

A porch (from Old French porche, from Latin porticus "colonnade", from porta "passage") is external to the walls of the main building proper, but may be enclosed by latticework, broad windows, screen, or other light frame walls extending from the main structure.
There are various styles of porches, all of which depend on the architectural tradition of its location. All porches will allow for sufficient space for a person to comfortably pause before entering or after exiting the building. However, they may be larger. Verandahs, for example, are usually quite large and may encompass the entire façade as well as the sides of a structure.
In eastern North America and New England, a porch is a small area, usually unenclosed, that is at the main floor height usually used as a sitting area or for removal of working clothes so as not to get the interior of the house dirty, as the front door is accessed via the porch. In the Western United States, ranch style homes often use a covered porch to provide shade for the entrance and southern wall of the residence. In the Southern United States and Southern Ontario, Canada, a porch is often as broad as it is deep, and may provide sufficient space for residents to entertain guests or gather on special occasions. Older American homes, particularly those built during the era of Victorian Architecture, or the Queen Anne style, often included a porch in both the front and the back of the home. This is used as a sitting space as well. However, many American homes built since the 1940s with a porch only have a token one, (rear one) usually too small for comfortable social use and adding only to the visual impression of the building. The New Urbanism movement in architecture urges a reversal in this trend, recommending a large porch facing the street, to help build community ties.[2]
When covered, a porch not only provides protection from sun or rain but may also form, in effect, an extra exterior room that may accommodate chairs, tables and other furniture, to be used as living space. Screens are often used in some areas to exclude flying insects.
Porches typically are architecturally unified with the rest of the house, using similar design elements as the rest of the structure, and may be integrated into the roof line or upper storeys.

There appears to be an original front porch that was closed in and made a room.  Wouldn't it be cheaper to have yard sales every now and then, as oppose to adding to the over stuffed house?

We did add three rooms to the back of our house, but we had contractors come out and built the outer structure.  Fil and I did the interior work.  Fil did enclose the carport to make a garage, but the door isn't big enough for anything bigger than a car which barely can do that after I had put in work benches.  The ranger fits, if I have a kid to steer as I push it in, then the kid climbs through the window.
 
2013-12-31 12:11:53 PM  
Actually, I think it's the back porch.  The front porch was out front.

My mother once threw out a broken toaster, and my father ran out to cut off the electrical cord, "in case we need it".  Because who hasn't been in that situation where you say to yourself "if only I had the power cord to an old toaster right now!"?

He died about ten years ago.  It turns out the only thing he couldn't horde was healthy bone marrow.  I love ya, you crazy bastard.

that sounds more like a veranda... which sounds more 'grand' than a lowly 'porch'... given my deep knowledge (gleaned from wikipedia in the last 10 minutes or so).. of covered and sometimes partially enclosed areas on the outside of homes...
