The client wanted a covered, year-round entertainment area that looked like it had always been part of the home. We set new footings in the existing concrete patio and tied the patio’s roof into the home’s. We used wood made from beautiful cedar for the posts, beams, trim and ceiling. We installed recessed lighting, speakers and ceiling fans as well as a weather-protected inset box for the stereo system. The client also wanted each post to be a place where friends could hang out, so granite slabs were slid into place from the top of the posts.
