Outdoor Living - Palmetto Construction and Renovations


The homeowners wanted to remove their old ground level patio and create an outdoor living area that would offer a nice, relaxing retreat adjacent to their kitchen and den.


The new screened porch features tongue and groove exterior hardwood floors that were stained and have a semi-gloss polyurethane applied. The ceiling is cypress tongue and groove with a clear polyurethane. Finally, Palmetto Construction & Renovations added can lights and two ceiling fans in black which works well with the natural ceilings. The removal of two windows, with the addition of a French door unit, created easy access and flow into the main house.

Eight inch wood columns and some extra molding detail were added to the beams along with a simple drink rail between the columns. Sightlines into the backyard were maximized with nothing below the rail.

With the addition of a small table and TV, the family has a place to gather for meals and an additional space to relax in the evenings.
