Having the sliding screens also gives us multiple entry/exit areas for the lanai. We have only had it for 6 weeks or so but use it a lot. We like having the doors open when not too hot so chose to use it more like a outdoor room. When too hot we cool it with a free standing air conditioner which is very inexpensive and keeps it about 8 degrees below the outside temperature, takes out the humidity, and makes it very comfortable most of the time. Would not go back to a screened lanai and the double pane glass panels keeps out much more heat and noise than single pane. our lanai is more quiet than our house.
Could you post some pictures of this? Would love to see them.

I have our BBQ on the lanai, under the original lanai roof and it is directly outside of the slider from our breakfast room. I have a very short walk from the kitchen to the BBQ to our outside table and chairs. Of course we don't use this space in the hot months but absolutely love our open lanai during the cooler months. Actually, I do cook on the BBQ 12 months of the year and in the rain too because it is covered by the roof. (I BBQ a lot). So far the lanai ceiling is as clean as the day it was painted (12 years) so I don't anticipate it ever getting charred by the smoke from the grill.
Have you had any problems with your BBQ on the Lanai, grease on the floor, bugs or anything else?

We have a Weber Grill and have never had a problem with grease on the floor. As for bugs, the grill is in the screen enclosed lanai, so no bugs.

I prefer to keep the grill outside on the uncovered concrete pad .. Lanai is used for relaxing etc not for cooking or food prep. If I did that I would have an outdoor kitchen with a vented hood. Then I would need plumbing for a sink etc.

We have not, yet. We have 2 quotes within $200 of each other. It is just a matter of money at this point. After the house, furniture and 2 golf carts we have not been able to get the lanai done yet.

Here they are. Each of the 3 sections allow for exit from the lanai, we only use the one in the 3rd section at this point but they are there if we choose to use them. To clean the exterior of the sliders we simply slide the screens to one side. These screens also allow 50% of the window area to be used for fresh air when choosing to do so. I made the vertical panel for the air conditioner exhaust to be portable, although it is weather proof I can remove it in just a few seconds. The glass is not tinted so it did not darken the room, we wanted to keep it light in there although it looks a little dark in the photos but it is not.
