From Pre-Fab to Farmhouse

Accessible from the main entry as well as the kitchen, the screened porch is part “front porch” and part “living room”. Wicker furniture, a swing bed and a television concealed behind the paneled doors above the fireplace make this a true outdoor family room, as well as a charming spot to welcome guests.

Sorry for the delayed response, thank you for your question! Yes, there is a TV concealed above the fireplace but unfortunately I do not have any photos with the doors open.

@weekend_warrior, we were at the house today for a photo shoot, so I took a photograph with the doors open. I hope this is helpful!

Thank you for your question. In most cases, we have the contractor build the swing. However, similar swings are commercially available via http://originalcharlestonbedswing.com/.

can you tell me where the swing-out sconces were purchased? Are they 'outdoor' lights?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to The Comfy Lake House Rule Book
Lake House Rule No. 6: Maximize your porch time. If your lake house has a lot of resident mosquitos around, you'll want a screened-in porch. Outfit it with rockers, wicker furniture and a swing.
This is the screened-in lake porch off the kitchen, which serves as a more casual living room for most of the year. A TV is hidden behind cabinet doors over the fireplace."A porch swing is a quintessential item on a porch — you gotta have them," Pylant says. The unique hardware on the swing is antique well pulleys that the owners already had. Another Southern porch must is Haint Blue ceilings.
