House and Leisure Before and After - - RENOVATION #4 -

Gass’ in­ten­tion be­hind re­plac­ing the drive­way with a deck and per­gola was twofold – to in­crease the use­able area of the home, and to pro­vide pro­tec­tion from the glar­ing af­ter­noon sun. A steel struc­ture pro­vides the base for a slat­ted wooden per­gola, flanked by a com­fort­able boma on one side and a splash pool on the other. The deck it­self is large enough for a 12-seater ta­ble and an en­tire lounge suite, mak­ing for great out­door en­ter­tain­ment. ‘The de­sign and ma­te­ri­als of the deck make it feel like we’re in a beau­ti­ful game lodge – since we’ve moved in nowhere feels quite as lux­u­ri­ous as home.’
