I believe downdraft range vents are usually for indoor applications, and I'm not familiar with indoor kitchen design. Perhaps a kitchen designer would be a better pro to ask.

Attached or unattached? top sheet material? - Hello, was this "pergola" physically attached to the back of the house? Also, what are the top sheets? Do they provide good sun protection or are they there just to protect from the rain? Thanks,

These panels are of acrylite and are the wave profile. The company that manufactures these wonderful panels is Deglas based in Germany. Check with your local plastics distributor to obtain them.

Thank you for asking!
This hedge is named Pittosporum 'Silver Sheen'. It is evergreen and does not flower.

Silver Sheen's can actually flower. The flower is usually dark red/purple in colour and is bell shaped. I have ten planted along my fence line, nine have no flowers; only one tree flowers.

we have a small man door leading to the backyard and deck. There are two 3-4 ft windows on one side of the door and a terraced sunken area approx 20 wide and terraced to the basement for daylight. We want to put in a patio and remove the deck. What are some ideas for stairs leading from man door?

We would love to see the space to better get an idea of your backyard. If you have any photos that you could upload to the question, the Houzz community can get on answering away!

Here is an idea of a patio from a main door. Originally the surface was way too low from this main sliding glass door. So we raised it! It was just a pretty useless slope all the way down from top to bottom, so we terraced it! We created two levels defined by a seatwall, so even the wall is useful, and now the whole backyard is fun and enjoyed by this whole family.
