We haven't heard of any problems to date . . . the house was completed over five years ago.

We had some pretty skilled craftsman working on this custom house and they were able to feather any height variation, only 1/4-3/8" in the picture framed trim.

This was a custom mix which is a blend of #1493 Morning Dew and # 1494 Vale Mist from Benjamin Moore paints.

I love this fireplace - based on the photo, I'm guessing it can be exposed to rain/snow on a screened porch?

At the risk of butting before Smith & Vansant can answer, the stove you see is wood burner and there aren't any codes that would prevent you from installing it on the porch.

Specifically, it is a SHAKER model woodstove from Wittus ( and the only real concern is that the warranty does not cover rust.

There are generous overhangs on this porch, so wind driven weather is reduced considerably. However, a quick wipe after such a storm would help extend the life of this product.
Hope that helps!

It's not, unless you count enjoying the heat from the woodstove during winter's cold months. Most people bring their fabric pieces inside or put covers over them during snowy months.

I am looking for exterior doors for a similar porch. Having hard time finding something. Any idea what kind of door is on this porch? Can see a little bit of it here...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mmmm, crisp and fresh New England air, comfy seats, and a woodstove to keep you warm while you look out at the spectacular view. What a perfect spot.
A wood stove on the porch extends outdoor living well into the cooler months.
1. A covered outdoor room. Many of you are dreaming of a three-season outdoor room. This room's usefulness is extended by a wood-burning stove to keep loungers toasty while they enjoy the spectacular Vermont fall foliage.
