This client wanted to replace an existing deck with a Columbus screened porch that had a rustic look. No other product gives you the combination of traditional rough hewn construction and sophistication better than cedar. The highly sought after grain pattern, color, and subtle scent are pleasing to humans, but discourage insects. We used the cedar to build an open gable roof with sweeping curved braces and exposed rafters that look elegant while letting in a tremendous amount of light. Another bonus of using cedar on this job was that we were able to pair it with cedar lap siding on the exterior that will be painted to match the rest of the home.
Even the family’s beloved dog, Sam, is impressed with the new space!
