It’s not quite finished, but our new screened porch is completely useable at this point. Even in this gosh-awful heat and humidity that we’re having here in NC, sitting out here is tolerable, thanks to the ceiling fan and nearby trees.
I want to be sure you see the stainless cable system we’ve used on this project. Because the porch is over 30 inches from the ground, there has to be a chair rail and something protective/supporting beneath. Many porches use spindles, like a traditional stairway or upper railing would have. Instead, we used the stainless cable wire with these cool connectors at each end. I LOVE this clean, modern look.
