Screened Porch

A friend of mine wanted his back porch screened in. So I grabbed my Ryobi tools and went to work.
This porch is 33 feet long, 8 feet tall and is constructed of pressure treated lumber. Its framed with 6x6s, 4x4s and 2x4s. I used a black fiberglass screen then trimmed it with 1x4s and 1x6s. Finished it with a 36" white vinyl door to accent the vinyl trim of the house. Single handedly completed in about 13 hours.

  • This is soo nice.  I don't have a raised porch just a smaller one about 10' x 10' that I would like to enclose.  You did a GREAT job!
