Miss Your Porch in the Winter? Create a 3 Season Porch and Love it All Year Long

Lately I have heard  people commenting on how they really miss their screened porch or open porch in the colder months of fall and winter.  They complained about having to take their plants inside, put up the cushions, pillows and accessories.  Personal touches that make a porch comfy.  Then there is covering the furniture against the weather or even storing it inside. In other words, shutting the porch down for the winter months.

It is said with real heartfelt regret because they love sitting on their porch and feeling close to nature and relaxing. They miss that experience in the winter when the days are shorter and darkness falls quickly in the late afternoon. The sunlight fades too fast in winter.

Taking a porch and converting it into a 3 season room might sound to you an expensive budget bending experience with lengthy construction time. You chalk it off to another of those dream about future projects. With the addition of a  PGT eze-breeze enclosure system it is surprisingly affordable with no heavy construction involved. Many Piedmont Triad homeowners have converted existing covered porches to  3 season rooms. The addition of a heater or the added luxury of a wood or gas fireplace and their porch becomes a room that can be enjoyed all year round.

This is a good time to add some pressure treated plywood under the deck for extra insulation or on top of the existing deck allowing for carpet installation or a new floor creating an extra design splash. Converting your porch into a 3 season room means you can leave your furniture out, keep the pillows and accessories or better yet create a fall or winter themed decor with some seasonal decorations.  What a great space for the extra family and friends that gather for the holidays. You might just become ambitious and throw that neighborhood Christmas party you been talking about for a while.  Another living, dining and entertaining space has been added to your home that will not only increase the enjoyment of your home for years to come but also add value  as well.
