Pop-Up Porch: Prefab Enclosure Expands Your Backyard

Whether you are looking to add an office, pool cover, spare garage or community space to your yard, this may be a perfect fit: an elegant, durable but ultimately also portable structure for expanding your enclosed space.

AirClad has constructed this structure to pack down with remarkable ease, converting each 100 square meters of space into just 1 square meter of materials requiring transport.

But aside from mobility, part of the point is to create something that looks and feels more permanent and like a potentially-intentional part of your home, rather than a spindly and ill-conceived conventional gazebo or hardware-store shade structure.
