not sure how to get a screen porch with screen and post it seam that you have to put a wall in and the only I can maybe get that to work is

to add screen doors that is not what I am looking for I would like 4x4 post with screen going to each post is there a way to add screen and post without a

wall added to it . I think a attach a picture I what I did with doors I don't like all the woof trim that comes with the door.

is there a screen panel in the program that maybe I can use to make it work

looking for some input thanks Ron

You have to have a wall to put an opening into. However, that wall can be designed to whatever you want. So create a screen panel to your own specifications.

 

Personally I have a wall defined as a screen wall, and I have windows and doors - purpose designed - defined as screens. That way you can change the glazing material to screen.

 

I stretch the windows and doors to whatever size I want, so there's virtually no wall left,

There is also a way to add a screen without a wall ... ish. Think outside the box ... define a screen as a wall.

For screen doors, do you know that you can put the two openings together ... this effect works quite well.
