Screened porch as viewed from the back yard
“You are looking at our screened porch from the back garden. The dormer above the porch belongs to our son’s room. When we built the kitchen addition, his room was extended about 14 feet, giving him a lot more room upstairs in what had been a pretty small bedroom. So, of course, he loved the new addition.” – Jonna Mendez
