Thanks for the question. These particular doors are wood Simpson doors that then were hung into frames. They are standard 6'x6'8" French doors which any window & door manufacturer would provide.

Thanks for the question. Overall the firepit is about 2' wide and 4.5' long. It is gas, there is an underground line run to it.

That grass is a Japanese forest grass called Hakonechloa macra. It does well in the Northwest.

who designed the porch/patio stairs? - I have a small raised (20") back porch that I would like to extend into the yard to use as a patio for a small table and bench. My garage is locates catty-cornered off to the side of the back door approximately where the bump out on this house ends. Then there's a back door from my bedroom that directly faces the garage entry door.

The fire pit is custom built by a local Portland blacksmith, Deform Metal. They built it from a sketch that I provided.

Karaoke party. The upper terrace would make a great stage.
Jenn Hannotte / Hannotte Interiors added this to Clash Course: Design Comes Outside to Play
Everything looks better against a dark color, and if you restrict the palette, your space will look cohesive but edgy. Add a jolt of the unexpected — the wonderful pink chair in this case — and you've mastered the art of clashing.
2. Consider steps and pathways between outdoor rooms. Part of what makes outdoor rooms work well is the way you travel from one part of the space to another. Consider adding stairs, terraces, gravel paths or stepping stones between outdoor rooms. Or change the material underfoot — pavers in one area; pea gravel, concrete and grass in others.

* Consider steps and pathways between outdoor rooms. * Think of your yard as a series of outdoor rooms. * Get more function out of a small space with well-defined zones. * Enhance an urban yard with a unique water feature. * Make a seating area feel more private. * Consider doing away with the lawn. * Go wild with flowers. * Extend your indoor living space with a deck. * Get more out of secondary areas. * Add edibles. * Redo your garden beds. * Add evening lighting and seating.
