Dear PoP – Sleeping Porch Renovation Examples

“Dear PoP,

We recently purchased a fixer-upper rowhouse complete with original screen sleeping porches and an unfinished basement. We would like to renovate the sleeping porches and make the basement into either a large den/play area or a small apartment. I have been Googling my brains out trying to find some examples of these types of renovations but haven’t come up with much. At this point, I am tempted to knock on the doors of homes which are obviously renovated and ask for a tour! To prevent this, I was hoping you could encourage some PoP readers to submit photos of their sleeping porch and/or basement renovations and help a neighbor out.”

If anyone would be willing to share their renovation photos please send me an email at princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com.
