I thought having a screened in porch would be more superb than having a typical deck, then i appreciated the method of kneeling in a cozy lounge chair, drinking our coffee, and studying a great book.
I never saw myself doing this with a deck because the bugs were horrible in the summer time and I didn’t want to build something that I’d never use, and when I was explaining our dream for the screened in porch to our sibling, he told myself and others that I’d never use the screened in porch if there was no proper source of AC, however the summers in this region are hot and humid, so despite having a screen around the porch, I’d never love it, part of myself and others wanted to resent what our sibling said, but deep down, I knew he was right, and he could tell how crushed I was, so he suggested that I install weather shades and a ductless mini break system.
The weather shades were basically rolls of plastic that rolled up and down along the sides of the screenâ€¦ You could see through them, so the natural light would continue to shine through, then during the summertime, I could roll the weather shades down and turn on our ductless mini break system. The shades would insulate the screened in porch and trap the A/C that was coming from the ductless mini break system. This would be the best way to love our screened in porch while the temperature was high, without needing to build a sunroom that would cost more.
