The screened porch, or as we prefer to call it the Aviary is one of our most used spaces in the house, especially in the warmer months. The screened patio is an ‘optional extra’ to the Alside Homes, and was not a standard feature. Ours is beautifully fitted out with interchangeable wire screens to plexiglass screens making it more of a three season room [December to February is way too cold to be out there].






It is a large space that we have divided into two areas: a dining area; and a lounging area. The furniture was switched out when we moved in, we have always wanted the Sculptura made by Woodard, who have been in business since 1866, based in Owosso, Michigan. Our pieces are vintage [sourced from eBay + Etsy + Charish] that have been refinished, however, they are remaking pieces and they are available at Design Within Reach. We still have the original furniture and it is in use at a friends home on a long term loan. Below shows the ‘real estate’ photos of the space before we moved in.



And finally here is a view of the patio area not enclosed as seen in an old sales brochure.
