- The sleeping porch is very pleasant during the summer. It has been used for sleeping during the winter, even by my dad when he was 84 years old, one February- see snow pictures from that time. 'It was like sleeping inside a snow globe!' Brisk, but cozy under the electric blanket. But it may not be for everyone!...moreless
