I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety. Psalms 4:8
I remember when I was quite young, visiting a cabin in the woods with my mom. The cabin was nothing fancy but I was enthralled by the “bedroom!” It was on the porch!
This was in the 70’s and a young couple lived there so I thought it was just a hippy thing but it was SOooo cool!
As I grew up, I realized it wasn’t a hippy thing! People have been doing this for like….forever! The above picture is from a restored historic site that represents life in the 1930’s.
Down here in Louisiana, if you sleep outside without being screened in, you’ll probably be carried away by mosquitoes!
If you didn’t have a screen in porch or if you lived before screen was invented, you would use mosquito netting! Almost all the historic homes in our area, have netting attached to the tester beds.
In the summer months, beds would be moved to the porch to take advantage of the cooler night temperatures. Heck, why not just moved the whole family out there, especially if you have a fantastic view like this!
