    Default Need ideas for porch window

    We just bought this house in MD and it has a back porch enclosed with wood panels (see attached picture) and aluminum sheet roofing. The openings currently have regular screen on them, fixed to the panels. We would like to use this porch in all season if possible and are looking for low-cost ideas (at most $2K) for putting some sort of window/screen combination on the openings. Any idea?

    I think the 2K cost limit is somewhat unrealistic for the goals you have. Relatively inexpensive vinyl windows would eat up your 2K limit for an area of this size, not to mention the framing expenses to mount them and to close in the area.

    I am not sure you will be able to make a "four seasons" room out of this structure either. Is that roof insulated? You appear to be also on a concrete slab. Such a floor would never be foot warm in cold weather, even if the room were to be heated.

    Anything can be done, given enough money, but you indicate you are not in a position to go whole hog.
