Porch

The main reason for building this house to have a screened porch.  A screened porch with a house attached behind it - that's all I want, really.  I started staining the cedar band around the perimeter today and will continue tomorrow.  The porch "ceiling" is the salvaged, planed fence slats from the original house's backyard fence.

The warm stained cedar will closely match the fir front door finish and will mediate between the deep blue board-and-batten walls and the white lap siding walls.  The black-stained PSL columns will get another coat and there will be additional framing infill to create the screen frame supports (ScreenEze) and screened door.
