There is a pulley attached to the ceiling and a tie off in the corner for manual operation.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here's the cabinet closed. Mark and Priscilla installed a Rumford fireplace on the back porch. The Rumford, common from 1796 until about 1850, is a tall, shallow fireplace; it was designed by a physicist who was known for his investigations of heat. He made them smaller and shallower so they would radiate warmth better. The fireplace poker set was hand forged 45 years ago by a blacksmith who worked at Mabry Mill on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. "Fires in the fall, winter and spring can't be matched," Priscilla says. "And it is a great place to watch movies or have a romantic dinner."

alvaged wood from another 1920s house in the neighborhood and built a custom cabinet for the TV. He rigged the cover with a rope and pulley system, so that he can mechanically open it and then close it off to protect it when its not in use. traditional porch by Sarah Greenman Sarah Greenman Here's the cabinet closed.
