Screened-in porches, it can be argued, offer both the best of the outside world and the inside world, for at least half the year anyway. Being in one you feel like you are out in nature-the chirping of birds, the scents of flowers, freshly mowed grass and you feel the breezes; yet you are shaded from the direct sun, protected from the rain, and you are shielded for the insects.
For ease of screen replacement, each and every opening has a raw screen which is stapled in place and easily removeable trim pieces hide the intersections. The timbers are Douglas fir, Select Structural with a Sikkens SRD finish.
