Hi Joe --
I have posted information about this sunshade previously inclusive of the name of the installer/fabricator Synthia Petroka, the fabric ( from Sunbrella) and the source of all the hardware/cabling - Feeney Wire Rope -- perhaps this is why you cut your message short -- if
what is posted is not what you need to know -- feel free to write again - and I'll try to answer your questions.
Best,
Cathy

Hi Cathy, Congratulations on this beautiful project. I was wondering if you would mind posting how much the sunshade structure, fabrication and installation cost altogether? Also how is it anchored to the deck? Thanks so much!

The steel framing is a great idea. Can you provide the specs on the tubing?

Planters, etc. - I love the metal planters around the deck area. Who made them and how are they attached? It's a little mini sanctuary. Great use of a small space ...a lot of use of the verticle.

Hi-
the planters are actually not metal -- although I agree that they do like they are. They are fiber reinforced plastic -- I need to get more information from the landscape architect -- Vera Gates from Arterra ( they are also on Houzz) and will get back to you to let you know where we got them from -- and any other information that she has.
They are largely weight bearing -- they sit somewhat below the level of the decking which acts as a restraint. If you want to contact me off line -- use cschwabe@earthlink.net I would be happy to scan the details and send them to you.
Thanks for the compliments -- I agree this is a lovely space and has very much the feeling of a sanctuary that the clients wanted. Collaborating with Vera on this was a real joy -- she is a gifted designer and I found the experience really inspiring.
More soon --
Cathy

Hi Michelle -
I just heard back from Vera Gates about the planters.
The manufacture is a company called Tournesol.
They are fiberglass. She is not sure how they apply the color but thinks its just sprayed on. Both/ std sizes and also custom sizes are available.
Here is the link for more information:
http://www.tournesolsiteworks.com/product-Wilshire%20Collection%20Rectangles.html

They really do nice work- I hope this helps and you are able to use them.
Best,
Cathy

you know, it looks more like a tub than a jacuzzi. I would love to bathe in a private place. is this a tub? I like sitting in fresh water every time. As i live in Southern California the climate is right. However, now I live in a community without outside space, so I missed that chance.

I very much like the good use of a small space. Perhaps it is off of Master Bedroom.

Cathy thank you so much, that's so very helpful and looks like something I'm going to get. Do you have any idea the ball park on pricing? Just trying to provide a client a ballpark?

Hi Beth - The best idea is to contact Duravit directly -- you will likely have a local rep. And or google Duravit Sundeck tub -- brings up pricing -- not cheap.
They are really nice though.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Modern Awnings: Sails Shade the Home
It's important to note that the fabric will determine the quality of light for the exterior space. A white and gauzy type fabric will create an ethereal light.
1. Create an outdoor retreat. Outdoor living spaces are all the rage, so make good use of your backyard by creating your own day spa. Pair a one-person tub like this one from Duravit with chaise longues and a contemporary awning for a much-needed escape from real life.
