Task - A large renovation project which converted the simple ranch house deck to an expansive enclosed porch including storage cabinets, and space enough for both office and rec room. The eye is drawn to roof lines of the house and garage, separate buildings, which sit at conflicting pitch to one another other.
An expanded, enclosed porch has windows on all sides for natural light and cross ventilation, and adds a full third more living space to the home. A mud room is built to connect house and garage; a remarkable roof design joins together these previously separate buildings creating a striking gabled front entry with cultured stone and brick accent facade. - Mystic Ranch, OR
Converted to an enclosed porch, large windows throughout create a light, airy room for summer bird watching.  Small wall heaters allow the homeowners to enjoy their new breakfast nook in winter months as well. - Eagle Point, OR
Task - The rear deck of the home looks out over stream and rolling hills, but the roof of the house extends fully over the deck and makes a darkened space.

A basic Trek® deck off the kitchen side door creates a spot to enjoy the morning paper, afternoon sun, or evening relaxation, and best of all, no more weeding. - Oceanside, CA
New construction - Home backs up to a now uncultivated orange grove.  The empty space offers tremendous possibilities.

Task - Retired couple hopes to transform the space between garage and next door neighbor into a breakfast patio. She would also like a place to grow flowering vines.
With slender space available between houses in this retirement community a simple fence, with trellises added for plants, creates a private patio for morning coffee. - Ashland, OR
Task - A wooden deck once overlooked the horse exercise arena here at this working cattle ranch.  There is now only empty ground where the sidewalk ends; possibilities abound. Homeowners would like a new deck area which reflects the character of the rustic 100 year old barn up the hill.
The small rectangular patio was expanded with sweeping curves which blend into the meandering lines of the stucco and brick garden retaining walls.  An overhead structure provides a shaded, inviting space for family and guests alike. - Rancho Bernardo, CA
Work in Progress - The backyard of this golf course home began with a plain rectangular patio and rectangular lawn.  Homeowners wanted to create a more graceful entertainment area.

Vibrant color blankets the Rogue Valley sky at dawn.
A concrete block foundation, Trek® deck, electricity, running water, built-in storage, and poured concrete counter tops, eating bar, and sitting wall caps make this the ultimate family entertainment area.  A rugged cultured stone, old barn boards for the siding and cupboard doors, and overhead timbers distressed with an iron compound make the entire structure look as if it has stood on this spot for years. - Eagle Point, OR
