Fine Art & Portraits by Laurel
I would love to know what sealants he used on all the copper fixtures, to prevent them from oxidizing in humidity, and on the beautiful concrete floors. I wonder why he didn't plant deciduous trees outside that garden room, so he'd have sun in the winter and not in the summer. What use is a 100 degree room? Oh, maybe they do hot yoga there? hee hee

Laurel,

Here are Ted's answers to your questions. I hope you find this helpful. Thanks Ted!

1. Copper fixtures - I have used clear lacquer on some. Works for a while...

2. Concrete - clear sealant as made by Scofield products.. http://www.scofield.com/concretestain_main.html

3. Deciduous trees - yes, there are over a dozen large trees outside the garden room expressly for the purpose of summer shading! In March, April, October, November and December, when the leaves are gone, I WELCOME the heat! It's a PASSIVE solar room after all...

Aloha, Ted
