Screened in porch addition to 1930's farmhouse in suburban Northbrook.
14' x 20' screened-in room addition had to entertain 6-8 people comfortably. The owners wanted to express the roof structure by creating a cross gable on a shed style roof deck. Using exposed beams with a white washed stained 2x T&G roof decking gave a light and airy feel to the room. The T&G fir porch flooring is painted whereas the exterior deck is a solid PVC deck boards. The shady site precluded any use of composite decking.
