Sandy Springs Screened-In Porch Design & Build

Craftsman Retreat

Location: Sandy Springs

The Challenge

After contemplating the purchase of a mountain cabin, our clients opted to enhance their main Atlanta residence — a Tudor-style home in Sandy Springs — with a rustic screened-in porch where they could enjoy a bit of that “back to nature” feel without leaving home.

The Solution

This porch design provides a great deal of utility, including boat storage below and a sleeping loft above the main space. But perhaps more importantly, we successfully married two very distinct architectural styles—English Tudor meets North Carolina Retreat. It’s a true showpiece: A heavy timber cedar structure that transports you to a place miles away from urban life. The aroma of the cedar creates a cozy outdoor living room perfect for lounging, reading a good book or napping on a cool afternoon. This became the client’s “mountain home,” right in their own Atlanta backyard.
