My New Screened In Porch and Deck

by Judy Clark
My gorgeous screened in porch and deck just got finished today. I am amazed that my contractor did all of this in less than four weeks. This is the finished product. The deck on the right is a connection from the porch to the den of the house and will hold my gas grill.
Here is where we started. I had the triple sliding doors out of the living room. On the right is the den with a door and steps that were covered up with the deck.
Starting on day one.
My flower beds had to be taken out. Bella the dog supervised every step of the project.
Coming along nicely.
Mostly done and unpainted.
The ceiling inside the porch is a very pale blue. Love the ceiling fan.
These are the fabrics I'm using to decorate the chairs, cushions, etc. on the porch.
Added new flower beds. Am so pleased with the outcome and look forward to spending many pleasant hours out there.

    I want to close. In my front porch. Is this the back or front of the house?

    Love the porch. Electricity? Heat? Would it be too forward to ask approximate cost? Thanks

      Thanks Rose. Yes it does have electricity. I have two outside lights on each side of the sliding doors and four electrical outlets. Heat - I have a small antique looking electric stove we will probably use when it's cool - not cold. As to cost, I'm estimating about 12-15,000. Contractor charged 12 and then I got doors, light fixtures, painting, guttering on top of that. I figure we can use it 2-3 months in the Spring and Fall. Even evenings in the summer. Thanks for commenting Judy@Rose

    Thank you so much for your reply! I am in Ohio and then helps me to make a contractor decision. Just put a roof on the house/garage. But I love, love the sun porch!
