This is the porch that I finished in the Fall. With a Budget of 8000.00 ” I went a little over” It is finally complete.
The Facts, It is a 36’ x 16’ Screened in porch. The columns are 6×6’s and 4 of them are routered for electrical. I wanted to make sure the wife had enough room to set plants and we had room to set drinks and plates when having parties so I installed 2×12’s for the top rail.
The ceiling I used a C non sanded ply to give it that rustic look and a box beam in the middle for support and to be able to run electrical for the fans. Not shown is the metal standing seam roof, which is AWSOME on a rainy thunderstorm day. The bench is framed with 2×6 and the infill wood is from a High School that I renovated last summer. They are 9”x1” southern yellow pine bleacher benches from 1948.
It was very labor intensive but extremly rewarding after completed.
Hope you enjoy the pics.
