Does Your Porch Have Knee Walls?

    The knee wall with the cut-outs is nice(but not the closed in), but Id prefer open railing as suggested with a gate for dog(as we have on our back deck and our dog loves it). But its your home. And I'm in envy of how the porch looks and the many choices you can have.
