If you're using an oil-based product, like plumber's putty or glazing compound, you could just seal the lid tightly when you're done and hope that when you come back in a year or two the putty isn't rock hard, but there's a better way.
Outdoor living, in Florida, is as much a part of the local lifestyle as a clam bake is in New England. Our most recent, major commission began as the expansion of small porch, on a 10 year old, Mediterranean Revival home in Fort Lauderdale. It evolved into new outdoor living and activity space for every member of the family.
“Additions and Renovations to houses should look as though they were designed by the original architect and should enhance the original building as a result of the new construction.” Un-named architect. We take this premise very seriously and execute our design and construction work accordingly.
Patterns and material selections utilized in the existing residence were the starting point for the design of the addition. Finish selections, consistent with and upgraded from the original, migrate across the project, blurring the line between the new and existing portions of the house. “You’d think I designed the entire building” the original Architect said to me as we neared completion of the project … a pretty nice compliment from one of your peers.
