I thought having a screened in porch would be more enjoyable than having a regular deck, and i appreciated the idea of sitting in a cozy lounge chair, drinking our coffee, as well as reading a enjoyable book. I never saw myself doing this with a deck because the bugs were horrible in the Summer as well as I didn’t want to build something that I’d never use, when I was explaining our dream for the screened in porch to our brother, he told myself and others that I’d never use the screened in porch if there was no regular source of AC, and the summers in this region are hot as well as humid, so despite having a screen around the porch, I’d never love it, part of myself and others wanted to resent what our brother said, but deep down, I knew he was right. He could tell how crushed I was, so he advocated that I install weather shades as well as a ductless mini split system. The weather shades were basically rolls of plastic that rolled up as well as down along the sides of the screen. You could see through them, so the natural light would continue to shine through, but during the summertime, I could roll the weather shades down as well as turn on our ductless mini split system. The shades would insulate the screened in porch as well as trap the AC that was coming from the ductless mini split 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.
