Atlantic Patio Furniture
Awesome looking porch. Adirondacks always seem to soften and comfortize a setting!

We don't have the floor plan. The house is roughly 30' by 30' plus the porch. Living room and dining room are at the front. Kitchen is behind the dinning room; with the wall removed these three rooms form an "L". In the center of the house there is a large rectangular hallway about 7' by 8' you enter from the living room. From the hallway the bathroom is to the right and the bedrooms are at the back of the house.
Bedrooms are roughly 11' by 12'.
Hope this helps!

Source of Outdoor Fabric for curtains? Thank u.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Inviting Adirondack chairs with monogrammed pillows welcome guests to the Benedicts' cozy porch. The couple installed striped Sunbrella draperies to dress up the outdoor sitting area. When they bought the house, it had a 1970s-style front door with gold diffused glass. Dan replaced it with this door, which he built himself. Rods: Benedict August; porch lamp: Kichler
