I just thought they were either screened in porches or screened in patios...I'm going to have to call mine (when it's finished) the fancy name (once I make sure of the pronouciation) and watch the weird looks from people. I did hear a patio, not screened tho I don't think...on HGTV the other day called something totally different from anything I'd heard before...but I don't remember what it was!
My opinion only. Not legal advice.
Okay, Yunz guys, I'm from the Burgh too ("Pixburg") and the only thing I can think that they call them here is Patio Enclosures, Custom Patio Rooms, Sunroom and the new one that I have heard is Polycarbonate Enclosure (which is actually just the material that the enclosure is made from)..
Living life in the fast lane, hitting bumps along the way, but enjoying the ride!!!!
Porch - roofed, open sided or screened, usually involves rocking chairs, swings, and/or sweet tea Patio - paved floor on ground level, no roof Deck - raised wood floor, no roof Lanai - started life as either a patio or deck but was enclosed by lattice/climbing plants Sunroom (Florida Room) - started life as a porch and then was glassed in.
Does that help?
You call it ADD. I call it multi-tasking.
we are in a Hurricane evacuation path, 150 miles from the coast, which is about how far the backup was for Hurricane Rita, plus there wasn't a bottle of water to buy for 100 miles around!
I am 240 +/- miles from the coast...and people freaked out about Rita here! Bought everything that Wal-Mart and HEB carried...and wouldn't you know that was when we needed a loaf of bread for lunches the next day?? I can't tell you for sure that it even rained here...
