    The ceiling is a pine tongue-and-groove flooring that is finished with a clear polyurethane sealer.

    Does a real wood ceiling on a porch require a lot of maintenance? My contractor is pushing PVC but I don't like the look. Does stained wood hold up better than painted? Thank you.

    Thanks! The ceiling is actually a relatively inexpensive pine tongue & groove flooring material.

    This is the 54" Rainman by Minka Aire. Very nice farmhouse style.

    The siding is hardie-plank smooth with a 4" exposure. Fiber-cement siding is very durable and can look good if it's installed well.

    We found the sink on craigslist. It came from a bar on 6th Street called The Dirty Dog! Try a used restaurant equipment dealer in your area.

    4. Measure the area. Use a tape measure to get a sense of how much space you have for an outdoor work sink, allowing for at least a 4-foot-square space of clearance in front of the sink. Budget extra space for countertops, shelves or anything else you need, and then choose your outdoor sink model accordingly. Narrow outdoor sink models can slot more easily into side yards with limited clearance. 5. Determine if you need a permit. Always check with your local building and safety department before getting started. Many counties require a permit if you’re installing new plumbing or moving existing plumbing. If you’re connecting a new outdoor sink to existing plumbing (or choosing a model that drains to a bucket or into the landscape), you may not need a permit.

    This new-build farmhouse on an organic farm in Austin looks like it’s been there forever, thanks to a classic design and antique touches used throughout. The porch acts as the main dining room, and the couple combined a farmhouse-style table with Shaker-style chairs. The utilitarian outdoor sink and antique oil lamp contribute to the hardworking farmhouse feel. See more of this Austin farmhouse | See more farm tables

    Host an al fresco dinner party. The warm glow from old-fashioned oil lamps, candles or a fire pit adds to the ambience of an evening dinner party al fresco. For a pleasant pace, start with cocktails and nibbles in the garden as the sun is setting, followed by dinner on the deck and dessert beside the fire.

    Instead of having an indoor dining room, which would have shrunk the kitchen, the homeowners put their dining room on the porch. Cedar planks make up the porch flooring. Rauser chose not to treat the wood, because he wanted it to be a living element that changes over time, displaying scratches and discoloration to give it an older, worn look. The ceiling is actually superglossy pine flooring.Chairs: Design Within Reach

    Celebrate the porch. The farmhouse porch is wide and uncluttered. Go without a railing so the space is undefined and the whole porch will be used. The windows are low to extend the indoor living areas. Lighting is primitive, such as lanterns or goosenecks. Hunt around for ceiling fans with a utilitarian feel to be hung from flat wood ceilings or exposed rafters.

    This porch is also a great spot for dining al fresco; here's a closer look at the dining table area. The utility sink is a brilliant idea, and the wood ceiling lends an unexpected polished note to the rustic setting.

    Becky Harris added this to Porch Life: 8 Ideas for Great Outdoor DiningMar 15, 2012

    Mix and match furniture just like you would indoors. Matchy-matchy outdoor dining sets are no longer required; today there are many options for furniture that can stand up to the elements. Furthermore, a porch roof provides ample protection for most of the year, as long as golf-ball-size hail isn't coming in sideways.

    Becky Harris added this to Get the Look: Modern RusticDec 23, 2011

    3. Go for the gloss. Glossy finishes on the ceiling and chairs reflect light and modernize this rustic outdoor eating area.
