We recently discussed this project briefly in our recent post titled “Don’t let old man winter keep you from getting started on your outdoor project in the NC Triad area!” which highlighted a few of our “in-progress” winter constructions. Since that story however, progress on this lovely screened porch located in NW Greensboro has moved along significantly. As we near completion, the homeowners are brimming with anticipation to enjoy their new outdoor living space with magnificent views!
We are busy finishing up this stunning outdoor room addition in the Lakeshore community of NW Greensboro. Interestingly enough, this isn’t the homeowner’s first experience with this neighborhood as they previously lived on the same street and decided to purchase another home two houses down just because they fell in love with this property’s stunning views of Lake Jeanette. Since they bought the house with these idyllic views in mind, they decided they wanted an outdoor room addition to take in all the vistas in an insect-free environment!
Because of the close proximity of the tall windows that are present on all sides of the existing home, we decided to use a flat roof for the screened porch. Flat roof styles are not completely flat. Archadeck of the Piedmont Triad always designs a flat roof with a slight incline. The incline prevents pooling of water on the roof itself which can lead to structural problems in the future.
In addition to the screened porch addition, we are also finishing the under-porch area so the homeowner can use it as a workshop and storage room. Since the lot slopes off heavily towards the lake, the homeowners had to level the yard to create the usable space for the workshop. Finishing out this space will include painting all the plywood areas black for a cohesive look and installing lattice. Additionally, we will also be adding a door for access and wiring it for electrical as part of finishing out under-porch portion of the project.
The screened porch will feature beautiful wood railing and provide a spacious area for the homeowners to entertain, or just enjoy quiet dinners lakeside. The homeowners will have the best of both worlds at their disposal upon completion of this project.
This screened porch addition is loaded with so many benefits. From the spacious storage space underneath that will keep garden tools and equipment out of sight and out of mind to the endless outdoor living possibilities of the screened porch, this is the kind of space we all dream of having.
