I have to be realistic and acknowledge that the deck would need to be screened in to keep out mosquitoes. One idea I've always wanted to try was to make a screen porch entirely out of used screen doors. It could be too kitschy, but I'd love to see how it would look.
What do you do when you want something but can’t afford it? You build it! The homeowner wanted barn-styled doors for her office, but they do not come cheap. Here’s what she did to get the look for much less: she used salvage doors she bought on a yard sale for $10 and improvised with plumbing pipes and casters. Total: $78!
