At last I have some photos to share from our recently completed porch addition - this is just a taster, there are some more coming. We loved doing this project as it was different and
unique. Design-Build process with Mark Hendricks as designer and Brent Hanauer as onsite project manager. Hope you like it as much as we do - the homeowner is delighted of course!

Fred: We offer an alternative to the Permanent Screened-in Porch with our custom made Mosquito
Curtains. We also offer the clear vinyl curtains to allow you to utilize your porch, gazebo, pergola or any outside living space with a roof. Check us out at www.mosquitocurtains.com. This is a DIY project that more than 15,000 homeowners have utilized!
While we lived in the DFW area we needed something to help with bugs so we could use our patio more. I found Mosquito Curtains online and after chatting with them we decided to give them a try. I remember being on the phone with them - on a Sunday - for quite a while. They were
very patient and detailed oriented. We ordered the curtains and equipment and put them up with no problems. Friends and neighbors thought they were great. If we need something like that for this house we'd use them again. We highly recommend them. It's indeed a small world!

Appreciate sooo much the unsolicited Review of our product and customer service. Your timing
was fantastic, as we saw a review yesterday on YP.com that absolutely bashed us . . . . and we took it real personally as we have an unconditional guarantee, and we suspect that this was a malicious review by a competitor as we have only had 28 product refunds in over 15,000 orders, and our motto is to create happy customers, then we make their curtains! Would you mind us posting your review on our Testimonial Page of our Website. Would love to work with you again now that you are in our backyard, so if you have any needs or want to refer us to any of your neighbors, we'd be happy to offer a special discount for such a nice "unsolicited" review.
Everything you see in this bathroom is NEW, including the toilet! And YES, I did all the work myself, from wiring the new light fixture to, putting up the new mirror, the new crown
molding, the tile floor, the granite bathroom counter top I had cut at a granite place choosing a remnant piece that ended up being cheaper. I also installed the toilet, new faucet, bathtub spout & shower head for the bathroom. My son picked the color on the walls!
I believe YOU can do it! DIY is my motto, and living in you home the way YOU would like to live in it just take a little patience to seek out the best deal and some sweat equity. You end up with something much nicer than what you had before and you are able to enjoy it and NOT wait until you are going to sell YOUR HOME to fix YOUR HOME!
DIY takes a lot of searching for the bargains and a little research and talking to the DIY home improvement store experts, they are very helpful and ready to help you get your project done! So get inspired and start a project~! Ana Maria

Looks like you changed the floor also, what did you do there?
Back deck renovation, we wanted to spend @ $2000.00 and wanted to go from SLAB to FAB! Back deck renovation, wanted to spend $2000.00 and wanted to go from SLAB to FAB! Most of the costs
involved were the material costs and adding a a couple feet of length of cement to the already existing slab. We used clearance slate from http://www.flooranddecoroutlets.com/ and a palette of flagstone we found on clearance to make a pathway into the yard. The pics are without the furniture cushions and all dolled up for when we use it but you get the idea we also changed the glass table for a rot iron one that works much better and matches all the other furniture.

You can definitely take these curtains down, real easy process, remove end caps and slide the
curtains out of track. Some folks Lightly power wash the curtains, others take the snap carriers off and throw them in the washing machine. When's the next Dance scheduled? You guys sound like a lot of fun. Have a nice weekend!
This Pool Room / Porch is beautiful. How are they dealing with the mosquitos in what looks
like an open living space? You might like to take a look at a few of the pictures I've posted of how Contractors and homeowners are handling their No-See-Um, Gnat and Mosquito issues at their porches, pergolas and covered living spaces like you have developed.
This project was inspired by my 2 year old son Braylon. Being a former University of Georgia football player from 2003-2007, I wanted my son to be able to experience Sanford Stadium first hand each and every day!

Des: This is awesome. Now that you are on the sidelines, great to start living vicariously
thru your kids as early as possible. I need to show this to my oldest son who is a die-hard Dawg fan! Thanks for sharing
