Nicknamed the “covid room”, this Albany couple started planning their screened porch and deck before the virus made it such a great idea. It all started when they wanted to give their indoor cats a place to enjoy fresh air and outdoors while staying safe. They contacted Bennett Contracting after watching a neighbor do a project and meeting the lead carpenter Josh Lockwood, who they took an instant liking too. Kyle and Sam rounded out what they called a “fabulous team”. Project manager Tony C. worked with them to come up with the design, Bennett arranged for an architect to do the required permit plans. Tony guided them to selecting cedar as the primary wood species and the finishes are both beautiful and weather resistant. They have a few heaters and a mini fireplace for when the cats get chilly. It is a nice private sitting area, lovely yard, garden and all within the city limits.
