Golf Course Get Away
Nestled along a golf course the screened in porch of this home offered beautiful views of the lush greenery. While the existing screened porch provided a wonderful room to enjoy warm weather, the homeowners wanted to create a space where they could comfortably spend more time throughout the year.
To achieve the homeowner’s goals of capturing the breezes offered by a screened in porch while creating a more usable space, Boardwalk Builders exchanged screens for vinyl track windows. Vinyl 4 track windows are a more affordable option than glass windows and doors. These windows can also be quickly open the room to take advantage of a breeze or good weather.
In addition, the homeowners wanted more privacy and additional electrical receptacles in the room. A knee wall was incorporated to make a smaller window space, and give room for the installation of outlets. The installation of sheer roller shades on the vinyl windows lets light through but still provides privacy and helps pull together the new 3 season room. The existing ceramic tile floor was kept and a large rug helps warm the space.
To make the space feel more like an indoor room and less like a porch, a trim detail was added on the interior of the knee wall. The exterior knee wall has a paneling detail to help transition from windows to foundation.
The homeowners have taken full advantage of the improvements to the space, they are now able to enjoy the views and the breezes throughout most of the year. With the mild temperatures of the fall and winter they have been able to use the room well into December!
