Beautiful porch! Is the entire black framed section removable or just the screen/window? How are that attached to the frame?

The entire section is removable and can be replaced with a screen framed unit of similar size.

This is considered a 3-Season porch. While it is obviously not well insulated, it is separated from the rest of the house via exterior grade french doors. The floor is radiant to allow for some space warming.

Whitten Architechs; thanks for answering so many questions about the porch and it's windows. The info was more than enough that I didn't need to ask anything but simply wanted to express my gratitude.

Thank you for your question. The wall trim is finished with "Cabot's" OVT solid acrylic stain - color "#0611 White". The screen / window frames are painted a custom color.

Of course I don't know since this is not my work, but if I had to guess, I'd say it's natural cleft bluestone.

Location of the screen porch in relationship to the surrounding environment is always pretty important. This porch is protected from wind driven rain by the surrounding woods. In addition, there a decent sized roof overhangs above the screens. If a little water does get in, the south facing orientation allows the sun to quickly dry things out.

google "Combination Door Company" in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. We used them for our screened porch and have both screens and glass panels. They are fantastic!
