The Poteet Loft Porch

San Antonio Texas  –  Poteet Architects

Imagine a warm, balmy night, good friends, a glass of wine and a soft breeze as you enjoy the outdoors.  Sounds wonderful until the bugs start joining the party. Here’s a very nice solution that adds a lot of usable space without breaking the bank account.

A combination of screened and open areas.
A combination of screened and open areas.

Like decks, a screened porch will add function and living value to your home.  The one downside is that screening does reduce airflow by up to 30%.  This example, by Jim Poteet, covers all bases by having an unscreened area that is perfect for the heat of the day.  As the sun (and heat) recede and the bugs start to arrive, pick up your glass and move inside.  “Ready for another?”

Screened all round with excellent air flow for those hot days
