A Porch for All Seasons
This porch in Arlington, Virginia, was built for a family that wanted Arts and Crafts style, space for a budding family, and a raised deck in back for relaxing on lazy afternoons. But the deck got so much sun that they couldn't use it. Instead they commissioned a screened-in porch in its footprint.
The new porch, which is accessed via the family room, overlooks nearby treetops and offers the family a place to unwind. French doors lead to a small deck for grilling.
