The Journey To The Outsider

It turns out designing something for mass production is not so easy. The journey to The Outsider included numerous false starts, sketchy manufacturers, engineering challenges, material defects - not to mention my overall ignorance!

After each setback, my husband would say ”Yea, yea, that sucks, but are you having fun?” The answer was always yes, because I truly believe in the Porch + Hall mission. If I’m being completely honest, maybe the answer wasn’t always yes ... waiting three months for a “final” prototype only to have it look like something your ten-year old daughter put together was resoundingly un-fun. 

Two years later, here we are. The group of amazing people helping make Porch + Hall happen has grown and I wake up every day excited thinking about all the ways we can improve, grow, and re-invent a doorment industry (sorry - couldn’t resist). 


Thanks for taking the time to read about us. We hope you’ll come along for the ride!
