I believe that might be actually a light. Would be suprised you would need a vent.

Murphy's oil soap is great and no need to rinse it off I use it inside and outside on all my wood flooring works great plus helps preserve wood

What product was used for the table tops? - Love the look of this! Your design inspired me to do this: Project: Elphinstone Backyard Project - Regina, Canada.

I would like to finish off my project with a stone table top for the built in corner/end tables.

Thanks for your time.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 10 Ways to Bedeck Your Deck
Built-ins can also take it a few steps further and build them out for more cushy lounging.
Lily Gahagan added this to 50 Great Designs for a Garden Party
When you've got guests coming, seating is key. Built-in benches, dining chairs and an ottoman to perch on provide plenty of options on this inviting deck.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Readers' Choice: The Top 20 Patios of 2011
2. The wall surrounding this outdoor patio made this photo worth bookmarking for many Houzz users. Houzzers were inspired by the built-in planters and all of the seating that this practical wall provided.
1. Use one long bench for multiple seating areas. Make the most of your space by using a built-in bench long enough to span several seating areas. Vary the height of your bench so you can position an outdoor dining table at one end and make a lounge area at the other end.
5. CleaningTeak furniture needs to be cleaned at least once a year to remove dirt, dust and stains. This is something you can do yourself with a diluted household cleanser and a bristle brush. Ask your vendor which detergent you should use based on the finish you’ve chosen.
