The owners really wanted something that provided protection from the bugs and an open deck with a very open feel. We came up with a screened porch that included a very spacious open deck with stairs all the way across the front. The result was a great combination of a screened porch that provides the bug protection and an open deck that really flows into the large back yard. This turned out very nice.
