The porch is an intrinsic element of the southern vernacular as the climate allows outdoor living for nine months of the year. Mobile homes are also prevalent in the area. This project fuses the two common architectural elements by using an old mobile home chassis as its base. It is built as a separate structure with two bridge connections so that the mobile home can be replaced without having to dismantle the addition.
