IPE flooring on porch of brick traditional style house???

lexmomof3November 15, 2012

Has anyone put wood flooring on the front porch of a traditional style red brick house? I'd love to see pictures. All of the pictures I find are of houses with hardi or similar siding. Our builder put concrete floor in the bid but I'm thinking about doing something different and I'm have a tough time finding pictures to make sure I'll like it.

I don't have ipe on my front porch, but rather in my master bathroom shower. Ipe looks like walnut, which IMO fits very well into both traditional and more modern decors. I suspect it would look fabulous in the application you are considering. It is a gorgeous (if heavy!) wood.
