When it comes to adding structures to your outdoor living area for extra living space, shade or function, the process can be more complex than starting from scratch. With an existing structure to compliment, the choices in materials, colors, design style, shape and size have to be well planned. We recently built a pergola addition for a family in Brookberry Farms in North Winston Salem. This project required specific considerations when designing the custom pergola, which means hiring a great design and build firm was essential in getting the results they were after.
The home featured a lovely two level outdoor living area; a covered porch on the upper level that opened up to a gorgeous half circle open paver patio. The homeowners were spending a ton of time on their covered porch but found that the patio was too hot with no shade. They called us along with several other Winston Salem deck builders to have a design created and quoted.
The Winston Salem pergola we built is the perfect compliment to their existing covered porch. We used square pegs and arched bracing to create the same detail as on their porch posts. With a custom curved shape for the pergola top, we created an interesting shade accessory that plays off the half circle shape of the paver patio below it. The result is a stunning outdoor living space that appears to have all been built at the same time as the existing project. Our design and build team made sure the post placements for the pergola allowed for as big of a living area as possible, while still making the columns so gorgeous they are not just structural but part of the beauty and intrigue themselves. Down to the last detail we made our additions fit right in. Notice the beams of the pergola roof. They stretch out from the covered porch with the exact same spacing as the current beams.
This family wanted to accentuate their existing patio and provide some shade. As a Winston Salem deck builder we made sure to really listen to how they wanted to use the space. We came up with a design that covered almost all of their open patio while complimenting the design features of their covered porch. We can create spaces that exceed your expectations as they turn out better than you even hoped for. That’s the difference you can expect when you hire a custom builder for your outdoor living project.
