doing a similar porch and I'm trying to decide between 4" and 6" wide. Yours looks so nice, I'd like to go similar to your look. And if you recall the thickness used as well, that would also be helpful..thanks!
I like to replicate the railing, how far apart did you space the spindles (balusters) ?
are the shutters painted that color or is it a wood stain? I love the natural color! Please share the color name with me. Thanks.
want it to look like a deck either which is what worries me about spacers. Any ideas?
and is a better choice than using T&G fir decking?
Ipe bleaches/fades to silver very quickly on its own
Code requires the opening to be less than 4". We typically space them at 4" o.c.
I want to use Ipe for a covered screened porch in GA and am concerned about the graying/maintenance? Or would that not be an issue because it would be less exposed to the elements?
