Porch traditional-porch


Arriving guests pass through a small garden before the front door opens to reveal the dramatic view. The main living area connects onto the covered porch and through to the kitchen and small den. A varied ceiling form and staggered exterior wall helps the large, informal space feel comfortable for two people or a large gathering. The textures of painted brick and rustic wall planks offset the warm tones of the vintage timbers and wood flooring.

What is the floor material? - We are looking for painted looking, wide board, composite porch flooring ? Apparently Azek curls at the end & don't know of another that doesn't. Thank you

Is the railing a composite material or wood. If it is composite what system or brand did you use?
