A Room for All Seasons

Past clients of Feinmann Design|Build, sought our design assistance on a project for their Belmont home that they’d long been dreaming of: a comfortable outdoor space creating a screened porch with heating elements to extend the seasons. Our team had renovated the homes’ Kitchen, Master Bedroom and Master Bath and was eager to begin work on establishing a place for our clients to gather with guest’s outdoors. Of critical importance to the plan was having easy access from the outdoor room to the hot tub area outdoors.

A cube design proved to be an innovative solution for the relatively small footprint of the home and yard. A square cut was made into the existing space and new doors were installed as one entrance to the porch. Similar to those found on the patios of restaurants, heating elements were installed. Connected to the hot tub area by a screen door, the homeowners are now able to dry off in the warmth and comfort of the outdoor room. Heaters and smart interior design created a space worthy of enjoyment in the fall and winter as well as in the warmer months.

Due to the close proximity to wetlands, our team developed a working relationship with the Environmental Commission to ensure that environmental standards were being met in the design and construction. Alongside the commission, Feinmann designed a rainwater mitigation system to direct the screen porch roof runoff into a collection tank. Unique design solutions, considerate project management and expert craftsmanship have helped Feinmann build a long relationship with our clients – for all their renovation needs.

Underporch screen insert material(s) - Great porch. What is the material used for the underporch skirting or screening? Is that a prefabricated product or an on-site created customized lattice screening? Looks terrific. Very functional while beautiful.

Hi and thanks for your question and compliment. This is one of our award-winning projects. The underporch screening is lattice by Azek.

Why not convert a porch like this into a 3 ½ season screen porch? - The Amazing EZ-Screen Porch Windows would keep this porch as clean as the day it was built. All the while extending the time the owner would be able to use this new found room. www.ezporch.com

Thank you for your question. The porch is enclosed with screens. There is a heater inside that makes the space usable in the fall and spring.

Look how quickly and easy this porch can be opened and enclosed. This porch is always kept clean, dry and usable over 300 days a year. We call it the 3 1/2 season screen porch.

I would think that most comes unpainted, so you can paint to suit the space you will use it in. If that's the case, you could probably have it painted black, no?

Hi and thanks for your question. We agree with Emily's answer. In this case, the lattice came white (composite material). Hope that helps.

question about the railing on the left side of the stairs - Did you attach a handicap compliant railing to the right side of your stairs down in order to meet code? We have just had a deck built and were told that in order to pass inspection we need to attach an additional railing. I am concerned that this will ruin the finished look. Thank you, C

Yes we did attache a railing. It is not handicap accessible, but is required by code. We wanted the larger rail at the top of the actual railing, but it does not meet the code requirement for grip-ability at the stairs. To be honest, I don't think you will notice the additional rail once you are using the deck. good luck
