Updating screened in porch

02 Sep

For example, our connectors were 3/4" long, so we subtracted 1-½" (3/4" doubled) from our width and height runs to get the correct frame dimensions. With the screen pulled tight, use the roller to push the spline into the frame’s channel.

Work your way around the frame cutting the spline at the corners with a utility blade.

In this beautiful North Carolina farmhouse remodel, the architect added a screened porch, creating a space that is sympathetic to the existing structure but feels like its own space.

Incredible features of this North Carolina farmhouse remodel include the screened porch’s vaulted ceilings, the salvaged timber island, and the hand-forged hook-and-eye tie rod that replaces a traditional wooden support beam.

However, even with a limited budget, there are still some quick and easy updates you can do that will have a big impact on your porch, like this gorgeous makeover from designer Brian Patrick Flynn.

You may already have some plants or flowers on your porch, but adding some hanging plants can really help draw the eye up.

The space went from the unused shaded area to having two separate destinations to include an outdoor lounge area with diamond painted concrete and a sky light, and an outdoor dining area with a ceiling fan tied together with custom designed corbels, new posts and balistrades.Screen and framing kits are easy to use because of the corner connectors.To get the accurate frame measurements, you’ll need to account for the corner connectors.The problem was that John and Sherry's porch columns were colonial-style (curvy and scrolly) and they did not match the columns on their car port.Then add to that a scalloped header - definitely not a match for either John or Sherry's tastes.
