The owners of this house were looking to create an outdoor kitchen. The house gave us some challenges; the walls were different heights, the layout of the exterior walls was offset, and there were neighbors located uphill. Lastly, we wanted to minimize the use of posts without sacrificing the structural integrity of the pergola. The end product provides privacy inside and outside the house, and a lovely, two-tier style pergola.
Before we arrived, this house had an ordinary, plain, hot patio with very little privacy. Once completed, the pergola changed the game entirely. Now the owners have so much added privacy that they can leave their blinds open in the living room and let the pergola provide the privacy. Evening entertaining will never be the same!
