A metal “cool roof” with a reflective finish deflects rather than absorbs heat. Windows are fitted with high-efficiency glass. Wide eaves, wood-slat awnings, and exterior Bermuda shutters shelter the interiors from the heat of the sun in the summer while allowing its welcome warmth during the winter. The lantern is from Bevolo Gas & Electric Lights. GreenSpace: Charming Carolina Cottage | Traditional Home | #gaslanterns #bevolo
Another DIY Board & Batten shutter hung Bahamas style. Flat Bahamas hinge was mounted up underneath a recessed brick opening. Premium black telescoping arms were mounted to the window sill to close and lock from within the home.
