thanks for your response. It looks very nice. Do you find acrylic to be a durable material on interiors? Iam wondering if it scratches

Hi. The acrylic was a temporary solution here. We are currently installing a permanent acrylic guardrail in a new house. It will have a translucent sanded finish that will be resistant to scratching. A clear acrylic will most likely become scratched over time, but a polishing liquid can keep it looking good.

Hi. Milestone can be used for exterior applications including siding and decking. Here's an image where we used it for an exterior deck -


The price point varies, but for exterior applications, you should probably allow around $20-25/SF. An integrally tinted concrete may be a more affordable option if you're doing an in-ground pool.
Thanks for your interest.

Is it possible to share a detail of the roof? I like how it has a thin edge coming off it the roof line.

Hi. These teak steamer chairs were purchased in Bali. I think you could find similar chairs through amazon, etc.
