Letting The Outside In

The other addition was a master suite with French doors opening onto an extra-deep screened porch. Essential for keeping the bugs at bay, the wood-framed porch wraps around the back, with another set of doors opening into the living room to allow breezes to move through the house. "It also brings a lot of natural light inside, and it's so peaceful," says Kim.
