Screened-In Deck

Foxchase Ct, Lawrence, KS (2022)

This was a 324 square-foot screened deck addition for a single family home. The goal was to replace an outdoor patio with an indoor screened-in deck that connected to the house. The owners wanted a place that felt like the outdoors but was protected from bugs and weather.

True to many additions, the challenge presented included utilizing the existing roof. The new deck roof overlapped the house roof and was designed as a shingle roof to align with the existing roof. The vaulted ceiling features cedar double rafters and a ceiling fan. Cedar wrap posts and a vinyl interior siding system were included. A stone fireplace was designed. Wood-framed black aluminum vinyl screens were added around the porch. New gutters and downspouts were attached to existing ones, and the interior was completed with warm finishes.
