Screened Porch

Three Season Splendor

Location: Sandy Springs

The Challenge

For this project, it was important to our clients that what we built looked like it had always been there. They wanted the space to work for them for as many moths as possible, have both covered and uncovered options. In addition, keeping the view from the deck was important to them as was the space for their grandchildren to play and for their family to watch sporting events. Due to a zoning change we had to fit within the existing footprint due to set back restrictions.

The Solution

For three season enjoyment, a gas fire place with TV and two ceiling mounted radiant heaters were included in the design for cooler nights. Other important elements for compfort included a ceiling fan for air flow screens to keep the bugs out. Weather resistant and low maintenance materials were also paramount to our clients. We chose to use ipe flooring for it’s rock hard quality inside the screened porch. Ipe stands up well to wear and tear and has great color. Our clients also requested that the floor have a special element so we designed an eyecathing inlay. For the non-covered deck we used composite decking for it’s durability.  Finally, to maintain the view we designed the deck to extend 4 feet passed the corner of the house to keep the view open.
