Fort Cowboy

The Western porch: My favorite architecture feature
The shaded porch is essential when the sun feels like it's 300 yards away. Ranchers in 1867 were smarter than modern architects who build flat front houses with windows facing the sun so unless you run an air conditioner 100% of the time the building turns into an oven. A covered porch is like a cowboy hat for your house.
