IdeaGarden

A wide multi-fold door completely opens the new dining room to the outdoors, while its generous veranda roof shades the interior space from the western sun. This porch features an outdoor countertop and sink for washing vegetables on their way from the garden to the kitchen and table.

That's correct, the cedar siding is alternating shiplaps of 1x10 and 1x4 material. The thought was to contrast with the the consistent lap siding on the original house. The stain was applied consistently; it's the variation within the material that created the contrast.

The steps are a custom detail with an LED light tape. A little challenging to execute!

The water falls from the gutter in "rain chains" - they are commercially available.

This would make a great beach house in Hawaii where I live. Wonderful architecture.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mitchell Parker added this to Houzz Tour: A Farmhouse Branches Out
A deep covered porch also helps keep the new dining room cool so the homeowners can open the doors fully to enjoy the garden. They wanted to play with different siding types to distinguish what was old and what was new. “It’s nice to distinguish one from the other to understand the history of the building, and not make it look like it all used to be this way,” says Tilt.
Falon Land Studio LLC added this to Wildlife-Sensitive Ways to Light a Coastal Landscape
Shield lights. Low-profile lights and lights that are sunk into walls and steps work beautifully to illuminate walking areas. Flood lights and spotlights are very damaging to animal habitats, because they spread light directly into trees and out across the coastline. Avoid lighting mounted on a rooftop that shines outward.Spotlights in particular are a common disruption for freshly hatched sea turtles on the beach. The baby turtles mistakenly crawl toward the bright artificial lights instead of the water and end up dying. Florida, for one, has policies that make it illegal to constantly shine bright lights directly on the beach for that reason. If you must use a floodlight, ensure that it’s angled no more than 90 degrees from the ground and fully shielded from casting light upward.

Low-profile lights and lights that are sunk into walls and steps work beautifully to illuminate walking areas. Flood lights and spotlights are very damaging to animal habitats, because they spread light directly into trees and out across the coastline. Avoid lighting mounted on a rooftop that shines outward. Spotlights in particular are a common disruption for freshly hatched sea turtles on the beach. The baby turtles mistakenly crawl toward the bright artificial lights instead of the water and end up dying. Florida, for one, has policies that make it illegal to constantly shine bright lights directly on the beach for that reason. If you must use a floodlight, ensure that it’s angled no more than 90 degrees from the ground and fully shielded from casting light upward.
