What you see here is a mahogany deck with cedar posts, copper caps, and coated aluminum balusters. The porch columns are reproductions of those in the magazine and required hundreds of cuts per column to fabricate. The storage area under the porch is visually concealed by stained lattice work. Pristine Home Solutions considered all the details: we even screened in the underbelly of the porch to prevent pesky insects from attacking from below.
