I've seriously been planning this patio for 3 YEARS. The only problem was, I didn't have a screened-in porch! Since I suffer from FOBO (fear of better options), I was keeping my eyes open for solid steals & deals and hoarding all the décor in our closet until it was built.
Now, I have to be completely honest, I had to put my boxing gloves on because Geoff battled me since he wanted the stone patio + fireplace built before MY room. Again, I waited 3 yearsss for this, so I was not budging what.so.ever. In regards to the structural design, there were a few things on my must have list:
-- Panels across the bottom of the structure
-- Double doors matching the bottom panels
-- Indoor/Outdoor Lighting
Prior to NOVA Remodelers breaking ground, they provided us with an AutoCAD drawing and video. Since I'm a big advocate of maximizing space, I wanted to build under the deck since most people don't utilize that area. Plus, in my opinion it gives a more finished, custom look. NOVA Remodelers even took it up a notch and surprised us with a coffered look for the ceiling. We couldn't be happier with their quality of craftsmanship and I'm happy to say Geoff agrees that we made the right decision with adding the screened-in porch. GO ME!
