    The cables here span 28 feet. The cables will need something to attach to--whether you need extra posts depend on on how strong the posts/frame is that you are attaching it to. Here, we needed extra posts because when we tightened the cables, it would cause the frame to pull and bend inward.

    Love the chaise lounges. What brand? Where to buy them?

    Thanks. Unfortunately, it looks like this line was discontinued, but we got the chaise lounges from Room & Board and added the cushions separately.

    Thanks! It was a custom designed and built fountain from a local company called Art Metal, Inc.

    Thanks for your comment. It really depends on your local jurisdiction and what else is going on in your neighborhood. Here, there are plenty of other neighbors with higher fences or hedges enclosing the front yard, so there were no complaints.

    Hi Amy, this was a product that was customized to our size by a local company called Van Nuys Awning, although there are others who make a similar product. It's a system largely of stainless steel cables in tension that the fabric glides along. The material is a Sunbrella fabric that is woven so that at each of the billows, there is a seam as well as a hook above that glides along the cable. The grommet hole in the center of each billow is to allow for rain water to weep through and not weigh down the canopy if left open. Each section of this is approximately 3'-6" wide and there is a metal bar woven in at the ends to give it some weight and keep it from sliding around. The non-movable end is mounted stationary. Hope that helps!

Inside the fence, the patio is outfitted like an extension of the home, with a steel-and-Sunbrella shade structure, porcelain floor tiles, luxe lounge furniture, subtle outdoor lighting and a water feature (which also helps muffle street noise).

Other features:Planting: Vines, including star jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides, USDA zones 8 to 10; find your zone), climb up the wood fence; cable supports (called a green screen) will help the greenery fill in. The jasmine produces a sweet fragrance that the homeowners can enjoy when they’re sitting outside. Water feature: Custom made with a fiberglass basin and copper pipes; the team submerged a pump into the basin that they then filled with river rock. The sound of a running fountain always enhances the feeling of serenity, and this one also helps reduce the sounds coming from the street. Fencing: The Douglas fir fencing works to solve the sound and privacy problems; Krueger filled the double-sided wood fence with rigid insulation to reduce sound. Additionally, he spaced the slats at the top of the fence so that they let in light and allow the homeowners to look out at the street, but are high enough off the street that passersby can’t look in, without the fence’s looking like a fortress. This same Douglas fir was used for the house siding. Built-in seating: Ipe wood and custom cushionsOutdoor lighting: Outdoor lighting along the house, directional lights in the planting beds and uplights along the driveway are by Hinkley.

Look at how the wall next to neighbors is solid and other walls have staggered pieces on exterior and interior for privacy. Water feature reduces noise, tile as the groundcover, the lounge area has a firepit, seating, and lounges.
