The homeowner purchased all of their own furnishings. If you are looking for adirondack chairs, we have a supplier pinned on our pinterest board under "Lake Home Lovers" http://pinterest.com/pin/261068109621195474/

Do you happen to know the dimensions of the fire pit area? And the fire pit, itself?

The firepit was part of the landscaping and we do not have a plan for it.

Have you ever had any luck with composite siding to replicate the look of actual cedar shingles?

We did use the fiber cement board on a couple of projects and they looked good. Fiber cement will never be able to fully replicate the actual look of cedar shingles because cedar is a natural product.

I think the beauty of the "octagonal" room is that the dimensions are in scale with the other parts of the back of the house. So, it doesn't really matter what these people used. A room such as this would need to be designed by an architect to fit the scale of the house.

It is set on a stamped concrete base. The pit itself was built out of fieldstone by a mason. For convenience, it has a gas run to it for lighting the logs.

I have researched our records. They indicate the trim is Azek and the color is white.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

4. Simple fire pit for Michigan summers. This classic fire pit mimics the shape of the octagonal screened porch connected to the home. Traditional Adirondack chairs in a glossy black match the exterior fixtures on the main house.
