Hi Danny, thank you for your question. Since the structure was built custom to the site--specifically engineered with structural and seismic requirements for Napa, CA conditions. We are unable to confirm that it would sustain snow loads in your area. We would recommend consulting with a local structural engineer.

Hello, thank you for your question. We appreciate your interest. The plans are not available for purchase, as the structure was built custom to the site--specifically engineered for structural and seismic requirements.

Is the grass real or artificial?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Synthetic grass technology has advanced so far that its hard to tell the difference ... I'm not sure, either. What I can tell you is that if it's EasyTurf, the owner doesn't have to worry about maintenance, bugs, rodents, fading, or worn out paths under the swings! A lot of day care centers and schools are installing EasyTurf on their playgrounds for these and other reasons - including our 'fall safe' technology. Are you interested in artificial grass? I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi, thanks for your question. It is in fact real lawn, not artificial. It happens to be one of the first lawns installed in our area using the new Sub-surface Drip Irrigation (SDI) technology, called "Eco-Mat" by Hunter Industries. Here's a link to more information:

One of the advantages of using sub-surface-drip: Water Conservation--reduced evaporation, reduced runoff, and no wind-blown water loss as from typical pop-up sprinkler heads!

Hi, thanks for your comments and question. Yes, the beams do span quite a distance. The structure was engineered, and the overall size is about 20' wide by 40' long. The covered part is about 20' x 20'. The posts and beams are hefty, too: 6x8 Standard Alaska Yellow Cedar Glu-Lams for the columns. A knife-blade for post-to-footing connection. The beams are 6x8's, and the rafters are 4x8's.

Yes, there are other roofing material options available, although this structure was engineered specifically for the metal roof. Our client likes it because it is lightweight, durable, and maintenance-friendly.

Who makes this swing set?

Hi, the play-set was provided by the homeowners and was already on-site before the backyard project had been started. We believe it was purchased from a company called "Marin Backyard" in Marin County, CA.

Hello I was wondering what type of stone is under the portico? - I love the colors they look like blues and gray with maybe a little sand.
