These Greystone residents had a very nice, conventional brick and tile deck. This wasn’t so much a case of replacing an old, rickety structure, but more so an opportunity for the family to get more use of the space. We designed and built a cedar screened porch right on top of their existing deck. The porch is cedar-framed with custom trim, which conforms to the archway design in the patio below. We kept the existing spiral staircase that leads between the new porch and the ground level outdoor amenities, but we added cedar railing framing with aluminum balusters around the screened porch area. This enclosed screen porch area will give the homeowners and their guests a new way to enjoy time in both outdoor areas, as both spaces will complement the use of the other.
