My Great Outdoors: Cogan's Screened In Porch

Pin it button
Name: Cogan Location: Crystal Lake, Illinois Type of space: Screened In Porch

Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: This screened in porch was built by my father. My mother always dreamed of having a screened in porch to relax and enjoy the outdoors! As soon as it turns to spring and the weather is just warm enough my parents immediately set up the decor inside the screened in porch. They spend time with the neighbors, have drinks, watch baseball games on the tv (my moms favorite!), watch the golfers on the 12th hole behind our home, talk and spend quality time together...Out of all the rooms in our beautiful home they clearly enjoy this one the most. It is almost impossible to escape from all the stress that we face during the day but at night when my parents are finished with work this porch turns into nothing but an escape.

How did you create it?:
My father built and decorated it. He wanted it to be an enjoyable space where we could look out over the golfers and the green grass while enjoying the beautiful midwest summer weather.
