Pergolas, Pavilions & Porches 5/15/2014

An enclosed pergola or pavilion or other outdoor structure provides a private retreat in your own backyard. The design options are endless but all allow you to enjoy some shelter from the elements without obstructing your view or connection with the rest of your outdoor living area. These structures range from:

  • A classic pergola supported by classic columns with open sides
  • A gazebo with strategically placed windows
  • A private pavilion which can be open sided or enclosed with sliding glass doors
  • Classic pool house
  • Classic lath house [a practical compromise between a screened-in pergola and wide-open pavilion]
  • A front or back porch gives your home character and a gathering place for both family and neighbors
