Beautiful use of Ipe in this porch. Did the conditions allow you to use tongue and groove? or was it spaced out regular decking?

How are the pillars made? Are they hollow or solid? What kind of base are they resting on, and what size are the pillars?

Thank you for your question. This project was the complete renovation of an existing coastal cottage. The posts themselves and the caps were custom made to replace / match the existing porch posts. They are almost carbon copies of the originals.

One more question that I forgot to ask you, what are the sizes of the beams/columns? Thank you and appreciate you sharing!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here's another peek at the same porch. If you look closely you can see another charming exterior décor detail, the crescent moon cutouts on the shutters.
Laura Gaskill added this to Sell Your Home Fast: 21 Staging Tips
2. Welcome visitors with an inviting porch. Even if you have only a tiny stoop, make it say "welcome home" with a clean doormat, potted plants in bloom and — if you have room — one or two pieces of neat porch furniture. Keep your porch lights on in the evenings, in case potential buyers drive by. Illuminating the front walk with solar lights is a nice extra touch, especially if you will be showing the house during the evening.
Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Hanging Lanterns Cast Porches in the Right Light
For larger porches, consider using more than one hanging lantern. In a space where multiple seating areas come together, using a separate lantern for each spot helps to define the groupings while adding warm ambience for nighttime gatherings.
1. The wraparound porch. An outdoor living space, the porches was traditionally used as a mudroom or a place for getting respite from the heat when it was too hot inside during the summer. It eventually became a place for enjoying shared moments with family and friends, rocking away the time while taking in the evening air. Get this look: Don't have a wraparound porch? A porch, patio, balcony or stoop of any size can still help you get the farmhouse look. Rockers and country flowers are classic, but if you're short on space, a rustic planter filled with wildflowers will set the tone.
