Due to southern exposure, this house needed an oasis to hide from the sun.
Additional requests were an outdoor kitchen and bar, fireplace, TV area, and dining area.
The solution was a covered porch that shaded 80% of the 900 sq. ft. deck.
The decking is Ipe on conventional treated lumber framing. Rail posts, structural posts, and trim are all Azek-wrapped. Guard rails are Resysta with Fortress iron spindles.
Over the seating area is a vaulted meranti ceiling with a vented cupola and paddle fan.
The outdoor kitchen is natural stone veneer over metal framing and HardieBacker.
