Screened Porch with Trex decking

Outdoor Living: A bright screened porch

Sandi and Roger met with us to rebuild their deck in two phases. First we designed and built the Trex deck. The following year we framed the porch, re-roofed the back of their home, installed skylights, painted, and last installed screens. Roger and Sandi are thrilled about our workmanship, attention to detail, and they love to show off their new outdoor living room.

“Everyone on the project was a pleasure to work with and we recommend them highly.”

Project Details

Up for the challenge

They asked us to build around their lilac bushes, so we designed a covered porch with “clipped corners.” This created a challenge because it is nearly impossible to frame an exposed beam, vaulted ceiling with clipped corners with wood rafters. We brought in our structural engineer and worked with him to engineer a “flitch” beam, which consists of a 3/16-in. steel plate sandwiched between 2×8 roughsawn rafters.
