Screen the porch to enjoy Wisconsin summers bug-free!

Screened porch

Some joke the state bird of Wisconsin is the mosquito. If that is so, and certainly  some years are worse than others, maybe it is a good idea to add a screened porch to your home to make outside living in Wisconsin’s summers more enjoyable.  Screened porches can be attached to the house or be in the form of a fancy screen house or gazebo tucked into the corner of the backyard.  Certainly less expensive than adding a 4 season room, you may really get a lot of life out of a screened porch if bug-free outdoor living sounds good to you.

Here is a idea book with 17 pictures of various types of screen porches and decorating ideas for them.  Take a look – it’s fun to dream – or maybe you’ll get ideas to move forward with adding your own screened area in your home.  Which porch in the idea book is your favorite?
