But over time things change.

And in 2013, the days of an acre lot and a ‘McMansion’ are fading away in favor of simpler, savvy and efficient homes with outdoor spaces such as a screened porch.

The image of a screened porch stirs an image of a happy, relaxing place to enjoy the outdoors with shelter from heat, sun, rain and insects.

A screened porch is often the best place of all to read or nap in privacy … entertain or dine with family and friends.  Add lighting, and a screened porch brings outdoor living into the night.

For these reasons, St. Louis is filled with self-proclaimed screened porch lovers.
