While the existing deck was lovely for part of the year, this family really wanted a covered, screened porch to escape the Carolina sunshine and mosquitoes. By building on the existing footprint, we were able to give them a new outdoor living space without too much disturbance to the existing landscaping. The best option for blending the new roof in with the existing one was to build a large gable. By taking advantage of the vaulted ceiling and installing a ceiling fan, they have better air circulation in the warmer months. The high ceilings also create a feeling of spaciousness, accented by the traditional bead groove paneling.

Is a Screen Porch Right For You?

We’ve got some considerations to help you make your decision. Check out our blog Screen Porch Vs. Three-or-Four Season Rooms: How to Choose.
