During the warmest season, you can enjoy the open, airy feeling of an old-fashioned screened porch, bringing in the sights and sounds of summer, day and night, without battling the bugs and mosquitoes. Changing the screen to glass will extend the enjoyment of your room into the spring and fall. The glass will protect the room and furniture from dust, pollen, wind, blowing rain and snow, in addition to serving as an effective sound barrier.

This three season porch construction features our Brighton style wall panels with divided lite transoms installed above. Since this room receives a lot of sun, it heats up quite a bit with all the glass installed. In the spring and fall, when it is still too chilly to convert the wall panels to screen, transoms provide a great source of ventilation. According to the homeowner, they convert the transoms from glass to screen first, allowing the heat to rise and exit. 

   
  During the construction of this three season porch, temporary posts supported the roof until the flagstone floor was finished, then the permanent posts and beams were placed and then the transoms went in first.  
     
     
 

Three Season Porch with Touchstone Woodworks' Single Lite Knee Wall Panels

 
   

  The growing popularity of three season rooms has led to a wide selection of stylish, quality furnishings for outdoor living spaces including furniture, ceiling fans, lighting, rugs and blinds.

 

This beautifully appointed three season room features our single lite knee wall panels. According to the homeowner, they installed a floor heating system under the porcelain tile and cellular shades on the windows to help with insulation during the winter. They report that even in 10-20 degree weather, they have been able to maintain 60-70 degree inside temps--warmer when the sun comes in the south windows

Construction Details

Touchstone Woodworks' doors, wall panels and transoms are constructed from 1-1/4 thick  mahogany with mortise and tenon joinery, epoxied and pegged through with mahogany pegs.

All our units are designed to accept interchangeable screen and tempered glass inserts, which are securely fastened with machine screws and shoulder washers, making them easy to change: all you need is a flat head screwdriver.

  Remove screw to convert from screen to glass   We offer a choice of white or dark bronze aluminum screen and storm frames. These are less cumbersome to store and easier to maintain than units with wooden screen and storm frames. If you have a screen that needs repair, just removed the screen and take the screen to your local hardware or glass store for rescreening.
