    What type of wood did you use? How did you treat it?

    The wood is rough sawn local (Vermont) hemlock left untreated. It looks great in these pictures, but has developed grey and darker streaks where exposed to weather. I have also been using local white cedar for screen porch framing.

    I absolutely love your design.

    I love the design as well, we purchased a mobile home and this same porch was built onto the front of the home, as a sunroom, I guess. It has screen all around it, and the homeowner even left us with panels of plexiglass that could be screwed over the screen for the rain and snow seasons.But, it's so hot on the porch in the summer, it's unbearable and same for the winter when we put in the plexiglass covers. We just have wasted space, so our next adventure this summer is to totally close it in !!!! Put Windows in, flooring, insulation and make it a room we can enjoy all 4seasons... Wish us luck !!! Plus, I know it will be a Great selling freature if we decide to sell on day... A Florida room, in Chicago !!!!

    A very small lake that I won't reveal to protect the privacy of my client- sorry.

    We are also interested in a cost range for the construction of this style porch. We have a small lake house upstate, New York
