CrossWorks Carpentry.."Where Every Nail Has a Purpose"
Segerstrom Screened-In Porch
The fresh air in Maine is certainly a gift, and when you have a chance to enjoy just that in your backyard, without the worries of the black flies or mosquitoes, then there's no doubt a screened-in porch is the answer. At this home in Falmouth, we have a back deck that will be transformed into a screened-in porch. We also have unfinished interior trim to complete, which will include, trimming a "Coffered Ceiling", and adding a couple columns, one of which will incase a plumbing stack.
As for the screened porch, the structure will be framed with pressure treated columns and the screens will be custom built to fit in between these columns. Everything will be finished off with pre-primed pine, and the roof will be covered with 30 year Architectural Shingles to match.

Now on this project, I'll be using a special coping jig which helped to speed up the installation of the crown trim significantly. It is tool I would recommend to all my carpentry counterparts.
