In the beginning of summer 2008, we started the construction of the porch, one of the main elements of the traditional rural houses in Romania. Other important elements followed, due to excessive continental climate and included along the centuries, were such as: orientation of the main face towards the south and the north façade completely closed. The porch is considered an intermediary element between inside and outside, both from a functional and a climatic point of view. Built on the south façade, it may be closed during the winter with glass panels, playing the role of a greenhouse. It is open and has a shading function in the warm season.
