Client Need

Patio addition to integrate homeowners love of outdoor cooking and space for family time.

Inspiration

Clients desire to create a space the entire family can enjoy and spend quality time together.

Favorite Element

Canopy structure over grilling area to create an all-weather space.

Biggest Challenge

Designing the pergola/canopy structure to be within the property setbacks and still create a comfortable and useable space.

Proudest Accomplishment

Knowing that the client enjoys the space and using it for family time and utilizing it for multiple uses. The client hung a projector screen from the pergola and had a family movie night.

Tough Moment

Deciding what to do when the manufacturer decided to find a new fabricator for the gas fire pan. Not being sure if a pan would be available in time for the scheduled install date or if I needed to find a different manufacturer that had a fire pan with similar specifications.

Fond Memory

Enjoying a beautiful late summer day at the site when out maintenance crew spruced up the area for a photo shoot.

Backyard Oasis
What better way to develop a large parcel of land.  This family was looking to cohesively capture fun activities at home providing an oasis for both children and adults alike.
