I really like outdoor living. My problem is no overhead cover. The storage compartments are a nice touch. What type of lumber did you use?

The body of the couch is a 7 ply AC plywood with a high exterior rating, but not rated as an exterior grade. Basically, it means it could sit at a rainy jobsite for awhile. The top is Trex and it has Behr Solid Stain for a finish. This was a very basic build. All butt joints brad nailed without glue. This will never move, so I didn't see the need for any more involved joinery. It's basically just boxes. The biggest challenge was figuring out the angles for the back. The base was made with treated lumber, leveled, shimmed and wrapped with Trex. The entire thing was caulked to the patio and the house with a GE elastomeric caulk.
