What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Steer the Sun and Shade With Louvers
By raising the louvers above door height, views from the seating area inside to the landscape are fairly open. The level, horizontal profile and position of the louvers means that the high, midday sun is blocked but the low sunlight can come through.
Three Oaks Retreat, Michigan, Wheeler Kearns ArchitectsThe horizontal finned screen positioned high up filters the high-level sun out of this space, leaving the lower section open to allow clear views of the surrounding countryside.

This is an awesome porch, the way that the walls are not even there is just beautiful. especially for a country house like this seems. Definitely Federal, there isn't anything in here that ISN'T Federal style.
