These Lenexa, KS homeowners chose high-end IPE Brazilian hardwood finishes for their custom screened porch and fireplace facade. The richness of the IPE works well in contrast to the light beadboard ceiling and the home’s exterior finishes. Beadboard ceiling facilitates hidden wiring for all electrical items, such as lights and ceiling fans. This cozy space offers two distinct living areas for eating and relaxing. This entire outdoor living space lends itself well to entertaining or private relaxation. The gas fireplace insert will keep the porch cozy on cool days.
