Like most of us living in the Pacific Northwest, we are always looking for ways to spend more time outdoors. Our goal was to create a large enough space for social gatherings yet not overpower the landscape. The use of vaulted scissor trusses provided a great place for recessed can lights and a ceiling fan. On cooler evenings you can either sit by the fire pit or take shelter beneath an infrared heater while enjoying music piped through the Boise sound system. We selected Fiberon decking, gutter protection, along with cedar post wrap and soffit material for ease of maintenance.
