Hi am new to this forum (been hanging out in kitchens lately)

We have a mid-50-s house in the phila suburbs- cape cod style- with a side porch - floor is cement, attached to side wall of house- roofed, with square posts, - we're thinking of screening it in - so what is best system and does anyone have photos to share?

I'd like to know that too. My Mom has a small front porch (8'x13') that she might want to screen in next summer. I'd love to see ideas and pictures too.

It sounds like your side porch is going to be really nice when you're done.

RE: screening in a existing side porch

Screening in a porch is really easier then you think. You can make the screen panels yourself or measure your opening sizes and ask your local window mfgr. to make them up for you.
I have some pictures in my album if they might be of any help to you.
Let me know.

We just installed mosquitocurtains. Could be a solution for you. Check out their website - I'm pretty impressed with their product.
