No Southern home is complete without a wide front porch. Here, dog Copper joins Gaye and Mitch on the porch built on a stacked-stone base. In addition to the porch, the house’s exterior incorporates tapered columns and floor-to-ceiling windows like Gaye remembers from her grandfather’s childhood home in Georgia.
