These Oak Ridge, NC homeowners were tired of getting sunburn and fighting insects in order to use their backyard deck. They decided to contact Archadeck of the Piedmont Triad to make a change for the better. Following a consultation with these Arbor Run residents, we were able to come up with a design that would put an end to their backyard woes.
By adding a screened porch to their existing deck we were able to accentuate the positive aspects of their outdoor living experience while eliminating the negative. Not only does the new screened porch provide a haven from the hot sun, the screened-in porch also provides a protected, bug-free spot to enjoy the outdoors. The screened porch gives the homeowners a plethora of outdoor living possibilities. The homeowners now view their outdoor space in a different light since the addition of their screen porch has been completed. To say converting their existing deck into a screened porch was a change for the better would definitely be an understatement. The new space has added function and beauty to their backyard and lifestyle.
We used a combination gable roof and flat roof design with a screened-in gable. The interior of the screened porch is finished with a plybead ceiling which was stained to add depth and contrast to the soaring cathedral-height ceiling. The interior also includes a ceiling fan to promote even better air flow for keeping the space cool and comfortable. Another eye-catching feature of the porch are the black belly rail pickets used in the room. The pickets add character and elegance to the space.
The entire project came together beautifully, from start to finish. The homeowners are looking forward to the upcoming outdoor living season and to being able to enjoy their backyard in peace without the sunburn and the mosquitoes!
