Porch enclosure


Hmmmmm! Where to start. I have three dogs. Got tired of them coming into the house during inclement weather with muddy feet. I decided to enclose the back porch with 2 - 36" x 54" windows and 1 - 72" x 80" sliding glass door. Also added a doggy door under the left window facing from the outside....

Porch enclosure


You can kind of see how I began to how I ended. The little one in the photo is my grand daughter inspecting my work.....Oh and one of the photos my poor pooch got a bath. He's looking sad but smells good....

The opening was not completely square to to house settling over the years. Had to modify my top portion of my framed wall gradually by 1/4". It left plenty of space for the rough opening of my windows and the door. I was able to shim plumb and square as necessary....

Took me three weeks cause I'm a novice. Spent most of it looking for my tools that were right in front of me......

I like the doggy door, makes for a perfect little mud room.
