    Appalachian Woodwrights in NC can make custom wood doors like these, www.appwooddoors.com
  • PRO
    They're 8 feet tall and 2 1/4" thick mahogany doors with insulated glass "simulated divided lite"* and a (real) bronze threshold.

    * 2 panes of glass with wood muntins on each side and a spacer bar in between so you get a reasonably close resemblance to a "true divided lite" door.

    HI -- Think you need bigger posts further apart. As for the flooring , you will need to put down some plywood to keep the bugs out and I think a good quality out door carpet would be better than tiles. That's what we did over twenty years ago and it still looks great with no problems.We are working at screening it in soon too. We love to sit out and watch the rain etc. in the summer and we are going to add a heater for the cool nights.

    I agree - bigger posts further apart will definitely improve the looks of my porch. I also like the idea of putting down plywood if I go with carpet again. I want my porch to reflect a dressed up yet relaxed nature - I am tired of the cabin-at-the-lake look (rough). I love my porch too - as do my cats and dogs. We all enjoy relaxing outdoors with no bugs to contend with. It's wonderful. Thank you for your input. This site is really helpful with people giving their ideas and input from experience.

What is the stain color on the doors?

love the porch. what are the approximate dimensions?

  • PRO
    From wall to railing is 11'-4", a nice size that will allow you to furnish it as an exterior room.

    Do you recall what these doors cost?

  • PRO

    No, I don't remember what the cost is. We've found them to be competitive with good quality doors from Kolbe and Marvin.

    love the porch swing...any information you can provide on that swing?

    The interior designer provided the swing. I've seen several similar on line with a rope hanging option.

Need wind protection and screening on a covered porch. Can you think of a way to protect us from the cold win

- Any suggestions?

  • PRO

    There are roll down solutions like Phantom Screen., but what I think of is the classic Sunroom- operable windows from floor to ceiling and screens. Perhaps push-out casement windows and pull-down screens would be the most elegant solution.

  • Chrystyna Alexander
    Sarah Gould, we did a lot of research but as of yet have not done anything. The view is so beautiful and we do have large sliders on the front of the house. So when it is real window, we stay indoors and look out the large glass front.
    Everything else was too expensive.

    Oooo... cost per square foot... there really is no "normal" for that, all architects and builders with experience in high quality work cringe when asked because those who don't do the highest quality work will always insist it can be done for less... and who are you going to believe, the person who quotes an "outrageous" number or the one who tells you what you'd like to believe is true? There is so much that goes into a square foot cost that you don't see, you can't compare apples unless you know what's in the builder's quote. For example, the flooring is 5/4 x 6 #1 kiln dried pressure treated pine with concealed fasteners, primed on all sides before installation, painted with high quality deck paint and sloped to drain.. that's way beyond how most decks are constructed. My guess is that it's 3 times more expensive than 1x6 spaced decking. Other things you see in the photo are of similar quality. We have the ability to design to budgets and most of our clients, if they take the time to let us explain the difference, understand that there is a big difference in common construction materials and techniques and what you'd want to have in your house if you knew about the difference. I've found most people have tuned out by this stage and what they hear is "...blah, blah, blah, these guys are way too expensive!" (Sorry to rant.)

    As a rule of thumb, screen porches generally run from 50% to 75% of the cost of the heated square footage of the rest of the house.

    This, I believe, is sea grass without a backing. I can imagine all sorts of problems a foam backing might create on a porch.

how far from wall is swing hung?

  • PRO
    You'll need to ask the interior designer- carolynhultman.com. It is pretty close to the wall, it's meant for gentle rocking. I was surprised to see it (I had expected a couch). But it's pretty close to perfect ... for the porch, the view, the client's aesthetic. A great interior designer makes a huge difference!

    Thank you. I cannot tell from the picture. Are they manual shooter bolts on the right door and then just a mortise lock on the active (left) door? I have a custom 8' french entry door on a home I'm building. I cannot find a 3 point lock for the active door that is not lever activated. These doors have knobs so that is why interested me plus it's a beautiful door.
