Sleeping porches were built onto historic homes during the period that people began to fear TB. They were built with lots of windows and people slept on them with all the windows open – especially during summer months.

It is not used for sleeping but is still referred to as Sleeping Porch Bath.

A new bath was installed in the original sleeping porch. The original tongue and groove wood walls, beaded board ceiling, wood floor and storage cabinets were restored. Three-quarter walls were added to form a separate toilet room and separate tub room while providing a wall for two new pedestal sinks, a closet and one of the original cabinets.

A detail of the sleeping porch bath shows the hand-stripped natural wood top of original built-in storage cabinets. Five pairs of small paned windows open into the bath and each pair is topped by a transom window. Lighting, tub, water closet and the pair of pedestal sinks are new.
