Cottage Screen Porch

By June 24, 2020August 20th, 2021No Comments

Atlanta area homes have long considered the Screen Porch as an essential. They are perfect spots for enjoying our beautiful spring and fall weather and mitigating the sometimes hot, humid, muggy, and buggy weather Georgia summers usually bring. Modern porches offer more than just a place to sit on a rocking chair snapping green beans, as lovely as that image is. An extension of the family’s living space, it can be a place to relax, entertain, throw a dinner party, play Monopoly, and so much more. The addition of a cottage style porch to this historic Decatur home is all about comfort. Fans to move the air during the stifling summer months, and heaters to extend porch usage all through the fall and mild winter nights.

The low profile of the porch enabled our homeowners to go with minimal porch railing.

More things to love: Trex decking (maintenance free composite deck material), seating for the whole family, and this neutral grey green (or is it blue?) paint color.
