Since this is an exterior screened porch the floor is IPE. Make sure when you use a tropical hardwood that it is FSC certified so you know they are sustainable and replenishing the forests.

Thank You. Was the IPE wood stained or is this the natural color? Thanks again.

I love your floors and we are thinking about doing a very similar room for our outdoor screened porch in GA, but I'm curious as to the maintenance of the Ipe? Given that its covered from most of the elements does it still "gray" or did you apply anything to it and if so, how often is that required to maintain the original, dark, rich color?

What is the IPE sitting on? Is it concrete or a wood frame?

Is the fireplace an insert or is it custom?
