About the home
Located in Kelowna, BC, this private residence takes summer living completely outdoors. With lush gardens, fire pit, water feature and views to Okanagan Lake, the homeowners have turned their back porch to a true retreat. Carefully selected outdoor furniture and fully equipped barbeque and kitchen help to create a multi-purpose space that represents outdoor living at its best.
Location: Okanagan, BC
Style: Arts & Crafts
Builder: Miller Homes
Product: Motorized retractable screens
Well known for hot summers, the residents of the Okanagan area enjoy warm weather from early spring until late fall. The homeowners required a solution that would provide shade from the sun and protection from insects, while retaining the views to the lake and the gardens.
In order to make the most of their back porch, homeowners selected Phantom’s motorized retractable screens that provide shelter from the blazing summer sun and do not block views to the outside or the fresh breeze from the lake. The selected mesh offers maximum sun control and UV blockage, maintaining cooler temperatures within the screened area. The screens were recessed into the porch columns, staying out of sight unless lowered.
What makes this project special
The generous square footage of the back porch helps the homeowners to create separate dining and sitting areas devoted to entertaining, relaxing and visiting. Phantom’s motorized screens enable them to spend time on their porch even when temperatures outside soar, thereby providing a cool haven that is still part of the outdoors.
