Where did you get your reclaimed redwood? Looks great. Want to do a driveway gate with it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The entry courtyard's roof, also made of reclaimed redwood, features an oculus that allows in light and provides a view of the pine trees.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Oculus
An oculus can be used in an exterior canopy as a way to brighten an entryway. The location of the light beam cast by the oculus will shift throughout the day as the sun moves across the sky.
From the other side of the door, we can grasp another aspect of the round opening: It traces the path of the sun both spatially (across the ground and the three walls) and in the shape of the light that passes through.
