Comfort is key! See how Ken planned the porch as a true living room.
1. Entrances Matching screened doors on both sides of the breezeway allow guests to enter the porch and back of the house from the barn or pool area.
2. Wet Bar Placing an island in this high-traffic area is a clever use of space. Guests can grab a drink on their way to the adjoining dining and seating areas.
3. Dining Area Keeping the homeowner's frequent entertaining in mind, Ken carved out an eating spot on one side of the porch to fit a generous table and an antique church pew used as a bench.
4. Living Room Three sides of screens provide multiple views and plenty of cross breezes. A large stacked-stone fireplace keeps everyone toasty on cool evenings.
