Michael Nash Design Build & Homes

Grand Award, Craftsmanship

A family hired Michael Nash Design, Build & Homes to install a new screen porch and below it a bath-house changing area in the backyard of their Clifton, Virginia, house. The project encompassed the construction of a bridge from the main sun deck into the screen porch with attractive custom made gated doors.

Principal Sonny Nazemian and his team cleared a wooded area to ensure that sunlight would reach the pool. They excavated a 25-by-35-foot portion of the property by four feet to accommodate the porch structure, which spills down steps to a flagstone patio.

The weather-protected screened porch offers space for dining and entertaining; it features stone-look porcelain tile, a bead-board cathedral ceiling and both recessed and pendant lighting.

Design Features

  • The lower-level changing area connects the pool deck to a Jacuzzi
  • Stone-clad columns and ceiling fans add interest and comfort on the covered patio
  • Custom iron doors to the porch are a focal point of the project
  • Stone selection and color scheme complement the pool scape and landscaping
