Verandah or Porch?

My previous post seems to have generated some discussion on what's a verandah and what's a porch. So which is this? Or perhaps it's a balcony? Or could it be called a stoop?

Perhaps its a verandorchonyoop????

This 1885 Victorian house is also on Main Street, and has recently received a facelift. For many years the whole house was painted grey, but the bricks have been sandblasted and the woodwork restored to it's former glory.

Oh no; I missed the discussion! I don't know if there is a difference.

Whatever the difference is, it's beautiful. And I want one.

Tee hee. In my everyday speech, they are the same thing.

This is a lovely reno!

Wonderful renovaton. I would love to have the balcony and porch area too. I guess they all mean the same thing.

A Porch.

I guess we all have our "upbringing" to throw into the discussion...our heritage, our culture, our language, our whatever. So we're all right, I'm sure. :) It's lovely by any name.

Cool pic. Or as my grandkids would say "sick". Not sick as in ill, but sick as in cool, good, awesome. Go figure!

I always assumed a veranda as a 2nd or upper floor outdoor space. And a stoop is the stairs leading up to the porch. So this is definitely a porch.

But I could be TOTALLY wrong. :-)

I would call that a verandah for sure!

I always thought a veranda and a porch were the same depending on where you were raised, and that a balcony was off an upstairs room.
But I looked up balcony and it can be off the first level as well.
I just know I do like them especially the round one below:)

That picture shows a veranda. A porch is much smaller. Usually a shelter for the front door and no more. A balcony is usually on the higher floors and a stoop is, what I understand, a walkway or trottoir or pavement for walkers.

I'm not sure what the difference is, but I love this one.
It looks like lace at the top.
BTW..we didn't have a cottage at Rice Lake, but kept boats there over the years.

I don't mind what you call them, but they are both beautiful.
