One of the biggest payoffs of tackling a home improvement project yourself is seeing all the cash you save. Take this DIY project by Reddit user TyFighter22 for example. TyFighter22 shows us how to diy a screened-in patio for only $500, which (depending on where you live) could cost a couple of thousand dollars to have done professionally. Which we think makes investing some of your own time seem like a pretty worthwhile investment. To start, this user attached the bottom panels to the concrete patio and nailed the top panels to the already existing frame. After installing studs along the support beams, he then stapled the screens to the studs and covered the staples with trim. To make it look more appealing, he installed siding on the outside, bead board in the interior and some more trim for a little extra flair. We know it sounds like a lot, but it is actually doable! Check out the slideshow below to see some before and after photos of TyFighter22’s new patio. And let us know if you’ve made an attempt at a similar type of project!

Warm, breezy evenings are some of the best things about living in Georgia, but I prefer to enjoy them without the company of mosquitoes. So I decided my first major project as a first-time home owner would be to screen in the lower level of a two-story deck.I tackled this project first for two reasons:1. My parents graciously agreed to partially fund the project and throw in some labor as a housewarming present. (My dad is a structural engineer who knows his way around a remodel.) My boyfriend volunteered to swing a hammer as well.2. We weren’t starting from scratch — the framework for the 8-foot-by-10-foot porch was already there — so this seemed like an easy first-time project. We only had to add some screens and a ceiling fan and voila! Instant screened-in porch.

The traditional method of screening a porch has pretty much remained the same for a hundred years. That’s unfortunate, because it’s a flawed system. Small tacks or staples are used to attach the screening to the porch posts and railings. Then, narrow wood battens are nailed up to conceal all of the seams and fasteners. It’s a labor-intensive method, and screens installed this way typically develop noticeable sags after just a few months. Plus, when it’s necessary to replace a damaged screen or fix a sagging one, you must remove several battens and yank out about a million fasteners. But there is a much better and easier way to install screens, and it doesn’t require a lot of experience. This project will show you how to rescreen an existing porch using the Screen Tight installation system. You can use the same techniques detailed here for new and remodeled porches, deck enclosures, breezeways and gazebos.

A screen-in can be accomplished on many areas of a house or yard, including decks, patios, and gazebos. But by far the most popular area for a screen-in is the front porch. The quick and simple front porch screen-in is a good example of how to make outdoor living space more livable.

There are several strategies that can be employed for screening-in a porch. If you already have a basic framework of posts and rails, you can attach screen and trim directly to the framing, then add a screen door to complete the enclosure. If no suitable frame exists, you can build a simple 2 x 4 frame.

Stand a stud on top of the sill plate against the wall, check for plumb and temporarily fasten it in place. Place a board for the top plate against the ceiling, using the upright stud to support one end and another stud to support the other. Nail the top plate to the ceiling. Repeat this process around the perimeter of the porch.

Place a scrap piece of lath under the door so there is a 1/4″ gap between the slab and the bottom of the door. Attach the door to the wall stud with hinges. Install a rubber sweep on the bottom of the door to prevent insects from entering the porch (Image 1). Install any remaining hooks, latches, springs and hardware.
