Build a Porch Part 2 of 3

Screen Porch Framing

Build a Porch Part 2: If you missed the other sets of pictures, here is Build a Porch Part 1 and Build a Porch Part 3. We are really pleased we have the opportunity to let you see how a combination open porch and screen porch are built on a dream home located in the Texas hill country.



From the original design, the porch actually consists of an open area and a screened in porch complete with fireplace. The screens in the screen porch will be held in place with redwood framing.

The roof will be supported by a stone/steel column and a steel beam. Included in the porch design are ceiling fans for both areas and a sprinkler system.

Our many thanks to RC Mickel and family who are so kindly sharing their photos with all of us.To see more pictures and a detailed history of the construction for this fantastic home and porch by RC Mickel, please see our Resource Page for more information.
