In the south, the weather is so humid, a porch is a must. The original French who settled New Orleans built homes out of timber and then eventually bricks. Homes were often built above the ground, stilt like and were surrounded by a full porch. The rooms had a door that opened to the outside, allowing the flow of air and access to the porch. A Creole is someone who has ancestral roots from the Caribbean. A porch of this fashion also has its origins in the Caribbean, hence the title, Creole porch.
