This is the guest bedroom of my home in Arizona wine country, an area something akin to Andalucia in Spain. The altitude is 4,800ft which means the night time temps are much lower than the desert areas of the state. My plan is to convert the porch to a screen room for open air sleeping. Even though you would not think of Bahamian hurricane shutters and Arizona as being a good pairing, I think they will meet my fire safety, solar loading, and security needs. This is the before drawing and I am starting on plans for a supporting structure, screens, and hurricane shutters.
