Arbors and Decks

The challenge: A Plano, Texas custom homeowner wanted to remodel a drab open patio into a usable outdoor space. But making the space livable required relief from the scorching sun and weather elements. Add to the equation that the area measured just 7’ x 12’ and Benoah’s designers had a remodeling challenge on our hands.

The solution: Small spaces scream for cozy aesthetics. A romantic Italian bistro setting fit the bill perfectly without detracting from the home’s architectural style. Our remodeling crew created a one-of-a-kind arbor to diffuse the sun’s rays. Romanesque columns grace the arched entry while a fan attached to an arbor beam blows a cool breeze. We added exterior speakers, self-watering foliage and a hand-painted wall mural for ambiance, which is also seen from the interior sitting area. What used to be a back door is now the perfect setting for wine and bruschetta.
