2017 CotY Award-Winning Project
One of the delights of living in the Cherokee County area is the opportunity homeowners have of enjoying magnificent outdoor scenery right in their own backyards. For years our clients had been enjoying the surrounding panorama of many towering trees from their simple uncovered wooden deck. Now they were dreaming of a screened porch that would provide them with the same gorgeous views, but protect them from wind, rain and insects.
“I have always wanted a screened porch. The porch allows us to enjoy the view in shade and comfort. We are very happy with the end result!”
The Atlanta Design & Build team worked with these homeowners to transform their existing open deck into a delightful screened porch with tall, expansive windows. In addition to the tremendous scenery, one of the main focal points of the space is the gorgeous fireplace. Constructed of fieldstone veneer with stone slabs for the mantle and hearth, the fireplace gives the porch a rustic vibe. The stained white pine vaulted ceiling and gray pickled shiplap wall covering above the mantle reinforce that look. Natural rough cut post and beam cedar, along with matte black balusters, continues the rustic feel of the space. The sun-beaten wooden boards from the original deck were replaced with Trex composite boards that offer the realistic look of wood along with valuable low-maintenance.
