There are some cheap temporary ways to reduce or eliminate that wonderful scent.
I would do the following;
- Wash the wood floor and base boards down with bleach solution. (NEVER EVER use amonia.)
- Paint it with Kilz ™, oil based, maybe two coats.
- Hang some kind of air freshener in there, and leave the window open. If there is an eletrical outlet in the enclosed porch, try one of those air fresheners that plug into the outlet and emmit a scent of there own. (I think Glade makes them?)
Total cost, less than $25.00 (plus your time of course.)
This is cheap, and has worked for me before. It should work for you, especially since you are going to tear the porch out later anyway.
Hope it helps,
