Chicken Wire

I'm guessing the chicken wire connecting the upstairs porch to the ground is for pet cat access. That's just a guess.

Shack?

I'll take it any day, with a central air upgrade of course. I've lived through more Florida summers than I care to count. Brutal when you don't have the sea breeze. And while I'm whining the humidity is no picnic either.

Flip-flops, shorts and a tank top

Each time I see Florida photos here on Shorpy with people dressed in TOC garb, I marvel at their ability to tolerate those hot, humid summers so heavily dressed.
