The mission for this project was to transform a large empty yard into a functional – and beautiful – terrace for entertaining. The owners had a list of “must-haves:” flooring that was sturdy, but couldn’t be “dug” up by their dogs; several areas that worked together, but could be used more intimately with smaller groups; and, finally, indestructibility. With the new access through the old living room fireplace, the new 100+ sq.ft. terrace is a conservatory-like space that has three distinct entertaining areas, anchored by a custom gas fire pit and covered by a massive, beautiful clear cedar trellis.
Garden Deck Remodel
When your home has a magnificent view of Lake Washington, a deck remodel quickly rises to the top of your to-do list. What began as a lackluster, second story wood deck became a magnificent Pennsylvania bluestone area that maximizes the view and creates a new venue for entertainment for this family.
