    Thanks for the response. I meant the infill, not the frame. It is a cable railing, isn't it? At this distance, I suppose it could be thin rods. It's a really nice look.

    The area under the deck has a rubber membrane roof.

    What do you have as deck flooring over the membrane? Is there a problem with mildew between the deck and the membrane, what if it needs to be repaired?

    Those are custom made - Galvanized steel and mahogany.

The addition is also set back from the original house, with a deck and trellis occupying the space that links new and old to respect the original. The addition features a metal roof deck and railing that forms an overhang to shade the windows, a contrasting riff on the original home’s simple roof overhangs.

9. Don’t be short sighted. We have had clients ask for baby gates installed permanently on their beautiful custom-built railings. We have had families with toddlers convinced they need adjacent bedrooms, not looking ahead to the teen years and the desire for separate bedrooms. You’re investing a lot of money and time on your remodel, so make sure it will last longer than the current phase your family is going through. When planning for a lifetime home, think about grab bars, accessibility and universal design — if not for yourselves, then for older adults who may visit. An accessible home is also valuable for resale.See more on remodeling for universal design

The pergola contains an outdoor dining area and extends out from the sunshade.

Cape Cod is to Boston as Long Island is to New York City: a way to leave the city and get in touch with nature, particularly the Atlantic Ocean. Houses on Cape Cod reflect the high property values of the peninsula, and also a respect for the place. This house in Truro blends into its context via wood cladding and a generous trellis.Cape Cod style across America

In this example a sunshade turns into a trellis over an outdoor seating area.
