This second-story screened porch has a combination roof. The shed roof has a small gable at one end. The shed roof slopes downward from the house at a very gentle slope. The gable in the middle adds visual interest and allows more light into the screened porch. You will also notice the slender black pickets on the railing. These are very popular because it’s very easy for the eye to see through the railings and thus making it easy to thoroughly enjoy your entire outdoor space.
