Raining - Even if the furniture is mad for outdoors, when it rains do we need to constantly cover or bring in the pillows etc? Are there retractable roofs/covers instead to make it easier?

DeCocco Design
Outdoor fabrics, such as those offered by Sunbrella, are made to stay outdoors. The cushion inserts must also be specified for outdoor use and all zippers must have good coverage. Maintenance usually means a sponge spot cleaning or occasional toss in the washing machine.

What were the legal requirements to install a fireplace of a NYC roof? Is that gas, wood or propane?

I'd check with the city and also with your own particular building or co-op. They may have their own set of rules as well.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Working Outside
This space not only has versatile seating and tables, and a lovely fireplace and eclectic view, it has a wonderful view of the inside through the glass wall and doors, creative the illusion of a larger space. When those clouds above darken and let loose the rain, work can easily be moved indoors a few feet away. I hope the dwellers open up those windows on beautiful days and flow freely between the outdoors and indoors.
I would seriously consider giving up my place in the burbs for a loft in the city with an outdoor space like this. I wonder if kids are allowed?
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to The Good Life In The City
If your home is in the city, having a bit of outdoor space is a true luxury, and this NYC terrace is about as great as it gets. Here is a space with ample room for comfortable seating, a fireplace, and a view. Simply wonderful.
Becky Harris added this to 12 Things Side Tables Can Do For You
12. Serve as movable drink stands for cocktails al fresco. These tables can move to wherever the guest and their margaritas decide to sit down.
All-weather upholstery needn't be neutral and boring, the fabrics available today can let you go wild with color outside too.
I wanted to find an image that showed someone making the most of an outdoor space, and I loved this one. This home does not have a sprawling yard and garden; it has a modestly sized deck in an intensely urban area. But some plush seating, potted plants and elegant flooring make it a place that's made for a warm morning with a cup of coffee and the paper.
Lily Gahagan added this to 50 Great Designs for a Garden Party
Invest in comfortable patio furniture to make the most out of your outdoor space. I'd be willing to bet more meals and get-togethers end up outside of this home then anticipated thanks to the inviting setup right outside the glass doors.
3. Finishes and WeatheringThere are three general options for teak finishes: natural/unfinished, sealed and preweathered.When exposed to the elements, teak naturally turns a silvery gray over time. You can see this starting to happen to the furniture shown here, especially on the arms. If you like this look, all you need to do is sit back and enjoy your teak furnishings; they’ll begin to gray within a few months. Tip: Buy all your unfinished teak furnishings at the same time to ensure they’ll end up the same color.
“Buy all your unfinished teak furnishings at the same time to ensure they’ll end up the same color.” — Christine TusherIt’s that time of year: As spring rolls in, reassess your outdoor furnishings and figure out what you need to buy to make your patio a place you’ll enjoy during the warmer months. Tusher outlines everything you need to know about teak furniture, from price to weathering to choosing sustainably harvested pieces.
