If You Build It…

Spring will come?

Well, to be fair, spring will come no matter what–all current weather evidence to the contrary. But spring and summer and even the golden, crisp days of early fall would be so much more enjoyable when spent relaxing and entertaining in your beautiful new outdoor living space.

This Project Spotlight is an excellent example of how you can increase the livable space of your home with the addition of a screened-in porch and deck.

For these clients, we removed a large, existing deck to create a new fully screened porch and outdoor deck, using the best in low-maintenance, weather resistant materials. We modified the roof framing to create the eye-catching tongue in groove spruce ceiling which serves as a stunning design element.

The flooring of both the porch and deck areas is Azek Decking, made of a premium composite material which will never rot, and the boards come together with a hidden fastener system. The screening is a Screen Tight system, which will allow the homeowners to enjoy their outdoor space free from both the nuisance of bugs, and mess of leaves and debris.

The addition is built seamlessly around the existing features original to the home, and the bay window really pops when set against the new deck and doorway to the porch. The custom-made truss, wrap-around stairs and light fixtures are the finishing touches that give this project such polish and style.

The clients are thrilled with their new porch and deck, which added about 350 square feet of livable space to their home. It’s perfect for entertaining, relaxing, and making the most of the best weather days of the year.

Which are on their way to us. Any day now…
