As we roll into Fall, you may find yourself building more bonfires, roasting s’mores with the kids, and sitting on your porch with the heater on.  Many of these projects include indoor-outdoor spaces which are ideally enjoyed in the fall when an outdoor fire can be appreciated or simply a moment to be outside before it gets too cold.

Outdoor fireplaces are a great source of warmth and entertainment and if you combine that with a screened porch, you have it made. To bring the outdoors inside, a wall of accordion glass doors can move aside and open everything up.

A three-season room with radiant heaters in the ceiling allows for maximum flexibility while a roller screen keeps the bugs out.  Make the most of the Fall season, then do it again in the Spring.
