The Old Fashioned Screened-in Porch

The Old Fashioned Screened-in Porch

May 18, 2011

I would love a screened-in porch.  A childhood friend of mine had one in her westcoast style home and I think I’ve wanted one ever since…her porch and a westcoast style home. With our warm summer days numbered here in the northwest, a screened-in porch would add a few weeks of enjoyment onto both ends of the season.

I can imagine how wonderful it will be to enjoy a hot cup of coffee and the morning paper on my someday porch.  Or to escape the summer heat while enjoying friends and family after a delicious barbecue.  Or to wind down in the evening after a hard day at work.

I think my porch will also have a place to sleep.  How lovely would it be to escape the summer heat and sleep outside?  My girls would love it.  I would love it.  It would be my kind of camping with all the comforts of home but without the stress of packing and unpacking.

But if my dreams of a screened-in porch don’t come true, I’d be perfectly happy with these giant swing out doors.  Just open them up on a perfect summer day and let the sunshine in.

Oh, summer, I’ve been waiting.
