How practical is the lovely stained wood in a humid environment like Maryland? - Hello! My husband and I are planning our dream home. Several elements of your design are lovely. I'm especially interested to know about the maintenance requirements of the stained wood shown here. And would it be "practical" in a climate that gets real cold in winter and very humid in the summer, like the one we have here in Maryland? Thank you so much! »
This space is covered from the elements, and has been created as a sort of outdoor living room--complete with rug space! What a great option especially for those with young children, wanting to be outdoors but not in direct sunlight.
