I'm so excited to share photos of the screened in porch, it's finally done (here is the before)! We were disappointed that it didn't get done in time to enjoy this fall, but at least it will be ready to go as soon as spring hits!
When planning the porch I was concerned that it would look like an afterthought or an insubstantial addition to the house. I wanted it to look hefty and solid- like an extension of our home. The carpenter who worked on the molding was able to achieve this with the woodwork and I'm very pleased.
The fireplace is my favorite thing. It turned out to be such a focal point on the porch. The stonework that the mason did far exceeded our expectations.
The floor is mahogany. Apparently, it can take a beating and still look good!
The ceiling is white beadboard.
We are so excited that it is done and look forward to lots of time spent in the semi-outdoors!
