It's a grass but not a fern. Checkout your local garden centre.

What about snow? Too heavy for that?

Snow was not a big factor in this project because of its geographic location.

The plexiglass actually becomes quite brittle and when leaves sit on it that promotes green mold which no amount of spray will remove. I am thinking of installing a metal roof with a sky light instead.

How about tempered glass? Too heavy? You can add a couple of long alum bars to support the extra weight. The transparent roof adds a lot of characters to the design and I love it.

How is the deck floor supported? In a traditional way with footings? - It just appears as if it's laid on the ground!

Will it be possible to install lights on the metal support? - This is because the lights at one side of the room is insufficient.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Most of the 2,600-square-foot residence is on the first floor. The spaces overlook a courtyard covered with a glass roof and open on the side (right) through deep-set fins of mahogany and steel. These vertical pieces allow for light, breezes and views when seen from the front, but when viewed at an angle, privacy is maintained. Here we are looking toward the master bedroom (note the opened wall between the courtyard and bedroom) from the entrance and living room.
Carmel Residence, California, Dirk Denison ArchitectsA glass roof covers the external room. The sky is visible overhead while the open finned walls allow gentle breezes inside. The combination of glass, wood, steel and void enriches the experience of sitting outside.See more of this house
