We have a serious case of spring fever here – can’t wait for the porch-sitting and cold-beverage sipping days of spring and summer. With that in mind, we’re bringing you a suggestion for making the most of your porch or patio — retractable screens. The cool thing about retractable screens is that you can have a completely closed or open structure – the best of both worlds really.
In the project above, a covered porch addition opens to a spacious patio and rear yard. When the screens are up – the patio and porch merge into one great outdoor space. When they’re down, the porch becomes an intimate, breezy, pest-free sitting room.
