Screened porch without roof?
This may sound like a crazy question, but can you have a screened "porch" without a roof?
I don't think I've ever seen such a thing. But, it's really what I want when I envision lounging in my imaginary screened room. I sit on my deck now in the sun and wish that I could leave the house door open, so the cats could come outside and lounge in the sun without my having to watch them every second, and the so the bugs can't get in. But there's no roof up there to block my sun, or block my view of the open sky, or to decrease light inside the rooms connected to this pseudo-porch. Like a deck with screens. Or would that just look super silly?
I want to feel completely outside yet secure. Is this a weird pipe dream or can you make it reality for me? Has anyone ever done this?
