I would love to have a rocking chair porch. Can one be added to a ranch style home? Picture below...

K,

Our front porch is the neighborhood meeting place. If you can add one to your home, no doubt you will enjoy the benefits. Here are some features I recommend: electrical outlets on both sides of the door for holiday decorations, ceiling fans, recessed lighting on a dimmer to create the right ambiance and have it wired for sound. Good Luck.

Not sure what a "rocking chair porch" is, but yes you could add on to the small covered porch you all ready have.
