Screened In Front Porch Design
Screened in front porch harkens back to a gentler time of year when the nights were cool, but not cold, and during the day the sun was bright and warm. There’s nothing like sitting on a porch protected from the heat of midday and buzzing unfriendly mosquitoes and no-see-ums. If you decide to put a porch on your house, there are a few things you should consider before you start building.
Look closely at your house to see if the screened in front porch will complete the house’s design. You may already have a porch or deck is that simply must be attached. This would be ideal. Check with the zoning department in your city or homeowner associations for any restrictions or regulations. Choose the right place. If you are starting from scratch, decide on a porch is the best for your house. Select the style of the porch. The architectural style is important to the overall look of the porch on the aesthetic and stylistic perspective. A pergola is made with long strips of wood placed at an angle to block the sun when it is at its hottest still allow light and air to enter the veranda.

Choose materials for your screened in front porch, whether you are building from scratch, or enclose an existing porch. Construct porch columns and the roof of wood if you have experience in design and construction. If not, use a contractor, handyman, carpenter for the major structural components. Install the screen between the columns or try products that fit easily between the porch columns. Build or buy a door to the porch entryway from the street. The door should reflect the overall design of the porch.
