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.
