The front porch of this coastal Low Country cottage is the perfect place to relax at sunrise. Neutral geometric prints add interest to the plush outdoor furniture that's perfect for reading or taking in the view. To combat the harsh sea air, the home features weather-resistant cedar shingle siding and Garapa decking, a durable, sustainably harvested tropical hardwood. (HGTV Dream Home 2013)
Perched 10 feet above the ground, this 600-square-foot deck, clad in durable garapa wood, is an outdoor extension of the home's great room and provides a cinema-like experience of the natural surroundings.
