Screen Room Nightmare!

Recommended Posts

Trying to create a screen room on the back of this house.

Problems are the curved house wall won't let me tie in at the corner.

The screen room is more that one floor tall.

Tried to use railing but that is fighting me.

 

I saw a Scott video months ago about screen room or deck but can't find it now.

I guess I could use invisible wall / room divider to create the room (-4 floor & 193 ceiling height)

Looks like the doors will stay out.

Then use p solids for all the columns & rails.

3D molding is a PITA for me to work with but I can see how to make the horizontal elements with it.

 

What is the easy way to deal with this?

Make a wall with one layer of screen, you can put doors and windows in, use PS for frames and mullions.

Depends a little on your specific design, but I would personally build a deck without any walls and then build the rest with primitive tools.

True. We build all kinds of screened porches and depending on the porch, I find it easier just to do it manually.

Thanks for the video David.

Good find Larry lot's of methods.

 

So i guess it depends on how elaborate the porch structure is.

This was done with pony walls and windows.

Just adjusted the frame size and casing along with the materials.

Here's a screened sleeping pavilion using pony walls, jalousie windows and screens applied as "blinds".

Cool Jon-

The screen is a psolid 60x60x1/16 with the "Y" offset at 2 (to match the intended window frame).  The screen material is the CA default set as 3x3 on the texture tab, as 3x3 gives that hazy "screen" look from a distance.
