Summer heat and bugs pushed me to it. This was an easy weekend project. The existing patio was open on two sides and even with the ceiling fan the bugs and heat made it unbearable to spend any time outside.

Good looking work. Nice lines and clean details, I really like it. Is the screen an enclosure system or rolls of screen material? Hope to do something similar to a patio area below a patio. Thanks for the inspiration, BTKS

I just used rolls of screen material and fastened it to the outside.

As a fairly new member to LJ, I was browsing when I found your project. Nice work. I like the vertical lines the trim shows off. A few years ago, I screened in a porch and I went to a local glass and screen shop and had screen panels made to fit. I attached them from the outside with screws and with dogs and kids and things that normally damage the screen, it was much easier to take a panel down, re-screen it, and replace it than the old fashioned way with lattice strips over the staples.Very nice job and I may borrow from your trim ideas.
