What Houzz contributors are saying:
Location. Once you have determined the intended function for your new structure, you need to determine its specific location. There are two main types of covered structures: those that are attached to the main house and those that are unattached. We typically refer to unattached structures as cabanas and those attached as covered patios.By any name, the two can serve the same basic function. The advantage to an attached covered patio is convenience and accessibility from the main living space. An attached covered patio can truly become an extension of the home, often accessed through sliding doors, or in some cases specialty pocket or folding doors.
