With this project we rebuilt the porch railing using a mortise and tenon technique to fasten everything together. The balusters had tenons on each end that fitted into the corresponding mortises in the upper and lower rails. The ends of the rails had tenons on them that fitted into corresponding mortises on each side of the support posts. Taller support posts were installed and then we added beams to extended the eaves over both porches. We installed framing to accept polycarbonate panels that allow natural light in yet still have the protection a covered porch provides.
OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE
Darnell-Group built a low maintenance deck with composite decking utilizing a hidden fastener system.. We installed a PVC railing system with black powder coated baulisters and decorative baskets. To light things up in the night, we installed low voltage lighting on all of the post caps
Darnell-Group was contracted by Leawood South to build a retaining wall, install a French drain and change grading to improve drainage from storm water run off. Owner of the townhouse is a repeat client and for their outdoor living space we build them a neighborly fence, a trellis and landscaping to create a backyard oasis for them to enjoy.
