Screened Porch Envy! Outdoor Room

Well, as the weather is turning back to bearable outside, I have found myself hanging out with the whole family in our backyard until dark!  We have been going through a LOT of bug spray, and still have mosquito bites everywhere!

One thing that I miss most about our last house is the screened porch that we had and I would LOVE to have one here.  I used to just leave the door open and let the cats and kids roam in and out as they pleased.  But let’s be honest, if our yard was bigger, I have ALWAYS wanted a playhouse studio that I could go and craft in or work… all by myself!  (someday!)

Justin and I have been considering building in a covered/screened porch back there since we moved here and have some ridiculously elaborate plans… that will most likely not happen!  If we did though wouldn’t it be nice to have the all season kind of space… yeah, I think so too.  In fact yesterday, we were walking through the little sample sun rooms they have in the parking lots of the big box stores…dreaming… So I thought it would be fun to look at some pretty inspiration shots.

I love how modern these are, and yet the wood makes them feel very warm!
And I love how the doors open up wide to make it an indoor/outdoor room space!
Um… and I really want that house too. The stone one… like I explained here.
 Doesn’t the picture above just feel cold?
I can practically see my breath fogging up, and I think I need some hot chocolate!
Oh, I can’t wait for winter!

I love all the seating… Wouldn’t it be fun to just lounge around in this?
This space actually looks pretty doable too!  Image source
I love the flowering vine on this one!
Oh this makes me think of girls camp in Tahoe!
And this picture has been going around Pinterest for a while.  I love the idea of using recycled windows.
Okay so if you could have a playhouse for yourself, which one would you choose?
I wanna know!
