Design and construction of an attached craftsman style porch and deck

This young family desired to be outside but the mosquitoes prevented them from enjoying their elevated deck. The solution was to create a screen porch in place of the deck and add a deck and play area connection to the yard. The owners desired a modern screen porch that respected the craftsman style of the house. The screened porch is spacious with skylights incorporated into roof design to maximize light. The connecting deck transitions the 4-foot elevation by way of steps, stadium seating and fun angles. This unorthodox design for a deck provides places for additional seating in the yard with multiple points of access and more open connections to the screen porch.
