PORCH OF DREAMS

A new screened porch doubles the living space of an East Austin house.  The owner is an aspiring politician. With the doors closed the space can be used for hosting dinners in the hot, insect-ridden summers.  With the sliding steel door open the porch transforms into a stage for talks and political events.
