They wanted a screened porch with an outer deck for grilling. The outer deck needed to be ultra low maintenance, so we went with Trex Transcend decking. We also used a new aluminum railing system put out by Trex. This worked perfectly and allowed us to match the railing on the open deck with the screened porch. The plans for the patio underneath require that there be no center post under the screened porch. For this to happen we needed to use engineered beams that would make the span. There are just too many features to list on this “Total Backyard Transformation”. Just check out the photos and you can see them all.
