Workbench Magazine March-April 1967 Screened-In Porch


Quote

If you are considering adding a screened-in porch to your home you might want to do as one home owner did to save time, money and labor, and use pillngs rather than a conventional footing and foundation. The pilings were 8-ft. lengths of railroad ties that measure 6 x 8 in. If ties are not available 6 x 6 timbers could be used, but the lumber should be pressure-treated. Lengths of the piling will vary, of course, depending on the slope of the land, but at least 3 ft. of each piling should be below ground level.

Oddly I am in the process of deciding to have a deck, or do a screened in porch.
