Building a Nice Back Porch

Jeu Cordes Thomastik Sliders Blues LightMy family and friends like to sit around and play music, my family has always been involved in music. Right now we are going to build us a nice place where we can sit around and play. Of course now we sit out in the yard in lawn chairs with our guitars and such, but there are lots of problems with that. You get too hot or too cold at times and of course you have a lot of bugs in the summer too. We are going to buy a new door from www.bifoldingupvcdoors.co.uk and build us a great big screened in porch on the back of the house. I am thinking that it will be more of a sun room to be honest.

Our house faces North in the front, but the back faces South down a nice gentle slope. We have a great big garden out there, about three eighths of an acre in size, but I would love to have a place where I could start the tomato plants earlier and it would also be nice to have a great big double door which would let in the sun and the air. So I figure I will make the room or porch about 15 feet wide and maybe 25 feet long, although that is just a guess. That way we will have all sorts of room for rocking chairs and also for plants. I am looking at getting a couple of pygmy date palms which of course would have to be brought into the house when it got cold. That is why I am looking at the bi folding doors instead of just keeping the sliding doors that I have now. If you have to move a plant that size you need a lot of room and probably a big hand truck.
