This soaring porch was able to maximize the views and light while minimizing obstruction of the woods. The deep porch overhang combined with the preserved existing trees completely blocks the overheating concerns of unwanted solar gain from the west. The ceiling uses multi-width tongue and groove pine. The guard rail is all locust with hidden fasteners for long term rot resistance. The deck floor is 2x lumber with a unique "hidden fastener" system that minimizes labor and material costs.

This could be great with the horizontals made of metal, not wood
