Comfortable outdoor spaces are hard to find during the winter and sometimes even during the summer. In the past we have solved these problems with semi-outdoor spaces such as enclosed porches and sun-rooms. The traditional method of creating a sun-room can be rather expensive and time consuming.
During the past few weeks we have been researching poly-carbonate glazing systems to enclose some of the porches on our homes. These systems are less expensive and simpler to construct than traditional methods. The system is essentially a kit of parts which is applied directly to the framing of an enclosure. These systems can turn your porch into a greenhouse for gathering and entertaining during the winter and with proper ventilation and passive solar shading can offer a comfortable bug free zone during the summer.
