Retirement Retreat

The owner who was nearing retirement wanted a place to entertain family and friends and have a place to relax.  The main design challenge was connecting all of the existing structures (garage, shed,  and the two back doors to the house). Two covered porches (appearing as one) were added to the existing house, adding a large amount of outdoor living space for gatherings and lounging.  An arbor breezeway was added to connect the garage with the bedroom back door and the shed, making a cross shape with a simple pergola at the junction and a circular paver detail below.  Pavers were added as the floor for this space and also included a screened in porch, covered porch with a wood ceiling, fans, electrical, and finally, the garden.
