It’s hard to search out knowledgeable people on this matter, however you sound like you understand what you’re speaking about!
After finding the plans, and buying and hauling back all of our materials, we were finally able to get a start building this weekend, and the first step was installing an extra column on the house-side of the carport (since we needed a place for the pergola brace on that side to attach). In order to make this work, it required a trip to the plumbing section at our local Lowe’s. Since we have ample driveway space behind the house for parking cars, we rarely parked in the carport simply because it made things feel more open and gave us a sense of an “outdoor entry”. I love how the finish of the Threshold Metal Lanterns tie in with the overhead light fixture. These pillows are the very first things I picked up for this patio makeover – way back even before the ceiling was done!
As I mentioned in the last post, we’re busy putting the finishing touches on the covered patio makeover. I think HGTV should have “Pimp my ______!” Then you guys could have your carport done and we could have our backyard done! This area has come a long way since we first brought in the patio furniture (and gave it a makeover). The plans involve some fairly intricate cutting and bracing (at least by my standards) so we’ll have to see how all that goes. The soft glow of the patio lights and the coziness of the planked ceiling and soft curtains really makes for a nice, relaxing evening outside. I’m so glad I decided to go with the glossy paint rather than the satin because the glossy finish makes it look like a glazed pot.
We had originally thought about closing it in but other rooms took priority and we grew to love our covered parking spot. However, Ash’s mom mentioned that after it rained the first few times, the fabric shrunk a few inches in length.
