Southwest Patio

Recently added sleeping patio on south west side of house.

Used wood for rafters and beams recycled by Mariposa Habitat for Humanity. By reusing this high quality dry wood, I saved money, trees and supported the first Habitat house in Mariposa County.

The polycarbonate roof had good optical clarity, with some shading, "smoke" color.

It is more comfortable sleeping outside in our hot climate. Now we have good rain protection for summer thunder storms and a sun or rain winter patio.
