spring forward: screened porches for outdoor living
As the American culture changes, so has the 'porch' evolved from an open, public structure applied to the front of the house to a highly valued screened and protected space, extending the private family living area and connecting the indoors with nature.
Whether suited for large parties or just a quiet reading nook, today’s porch takes new shape, utilizing innovative materials and creative detailing with a unique design solution for each home and family.
A barrel vaulted roof is a great solution to creating a voluminous space with a minimal impact on an existing house. This screened porch is detailed in a more traditional 'sunroom' style to give it presence as a structure. The large screened openings are carefully detailed to maintain a sense of proportion to the room.
