  1. In Australia and New Zealand, verandahs are generally big spaces, often wrapping around two or three sides of a house, nice and broad to offer shade from beating sun or rain. We also have porches, which are smaller, perhaps enclosed areas, or perhaps stretching a bit wider across the front of the house, but not around the sides. Often verandahs are found on houses in the country, where you need more space for your dirty gumboots, kids to ride their tricycles on (do kids have tricycles these days???) and dogs to lounge on. Often porches are places to put stuff rather than to spend time hanging out in.

  2. Ingrid and Lesley,

    I had to chuckle when you talked about porches in the US. Although I haven't been to every state (but easily half of them), of all the ones I have visited you will see porches. I grew up on Long Island, NY and we had both a front and back porch (though my parents did close the back porch off to be an all-season room). Now I have a vacation cottage on Lake Ontario in upstate NY and it has a porch. If you drive around the US, you will see lots of porches!!!
