    Thank you. The roof does have a slight pitch to it but you could have a steeper pitched roof with a flat ceiling inside.

    This Porch was new construction - we ordered the columns in two halves and sandwiched the wall - otherwise we have scribed trim to the columns and created a regular frame for the screen panels.
  • Becky Ricketts Lopuhovsky
    Do you get the scribed trim from the column manufacturer or do you make it yourself? If so - how much do you charge? Also, what screen system did you use? Thank you.

    The ceiling fan is 52" in diameter. It is the "Industry Fan" from Restoration Hardware

    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 for interest. The flooring in natural ipe and the ceiling is stained fir in Minwax's "Early American".
  • epearsall
    Is there a clear coat on top of the Minwax "Early American" to give it that glossy look?

    Thanks for the inquiry. They are just screens. Rain is rarely an issue.

    The columns we use are from Somerset Columns. Typically the columns come in two halves and are applied to either side of the load bearing wall. Thanks for your inquiry.

    On this project it is a mix of PVC and wood and the columns are composite fiberglass. We try to do PVC on the exterior as much as possible. Thanks.

    Thanks for your interest but unfortunately this project was complete a number of years ago and I was not able to locate that information.

    Thanks for your interest in the photo. The porch is solely used as a screened in porch so removable glass panels were not part of the design.
