Articles about our porch enclosure projects
We recently uncovered some photographs of a project by Black Dog Design to enclose a porch for year-round use by a hunting club in southeast Arkansas. Here are a few of those photos showing some details of the project.

This is a view of the curved rafter areas, full length clear sides, and a short side with wood at the bottom.
On the walls, the panels that go to the bottom of the walls and the ones that stop just at the wood about half way down are roll shades. The panels that are on the doors and rafter areas snap on.
The roll shades zip together and are attached to the ends of the panels to the structure with a zipper that lets them roll up.

Walk into the kitchen/pool area and all of the traffic and neighbors go away. Very soothing and relaxing.
Our customer wanted year-round use of their screened porch and to add come color to their home. We accomplished this by framing the windows with red enclosure panels that can be rolled up when the weather is good or closed when heating or cooling is desired. The red panels add a bright touch to their porch.
We were able to make this wall look continuous by connecting the various panels to give a nice clean line.
The panels are fastened on each end to the structure, giving the enclosure protection from wind and rain.
