One of the many benefits we offer our clients is that we obtain any permits, inspections, and plans that are needed to ensure the compliance and safety of any new outdoor living structure we build. This may include, but is not limited to, designing our spaces to ensure setbacks and any HOA requirements are met.
Our recent screened porch project in Farmers Branch, TX, is a fine example of a project which was designed to meet the setback and HOA requirements of this particular community.
As you can see from these before and after images, the home had a small covered patio on the back of their home. The homeowners wanted to improve their outdoor living area and make it more conducive to all-season enjoyment. After careful consideration of how they wanted to utilize their space, they made the decision to extend their existing patio cover and upgrade to a structure that offered more functionality and protection — a screened porch.
The design for the new screened porch roof is what we refer to as a shed-to-gable roof. Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake tied the new roof into the existing roof using a cricket.
For the patio floor, we used a stain & stamp concrete overlay and extension in the wooden deck pattern. The colors used for the patio were Dessert Tan with a Charcoal release with extra Charcoal. For the porch interior ceiling finish, we used a Smart panel painted in a nice shade of gray. Two ceiling fans and recessed can lighting finish out the interior details.
Since available space was a concern on this lot, along with making sure it met all needed spatial requirements, we made the most use of the space we had available— which includes the stunning view. We utilized the Screeneze screening system in Bronze for this project because it allows for spans longer than traditional screening and longer views! We used low-maintenance PCA aluminum doors, also in bronze.
