    Love the look. I can't help but notice that both the total removal of the porch overhang and awning, as well as the addition of somewhat reflective patio components, must've added a huge energy use penalty to the house in terms of cooling, though.

    Anne Rowley: Though there is solar gain from removing those existing shading components (that were in terrible shape), curtains and opening the Kitchen and Living Room windows mitigate the heat - cross ventilation. In fact, the house is located two miles from the Pacific Ocean and the ocean breeze gusts through the adjacent alley and through the house. We never use AC.

This table - not the log bench, though!
