Forever HomeTraditional Patio, Chicago

Several lighting techniques combine to illuminate the garden after hours. Laminated pergola beams span 24’ over the water garden, while a mortared step and grade beam marks the existing elevations preserved to protect existing trees.

    Looks as if the installer laid the tiles to fit. As I see no patter repeat.

    This is the versailles/french pattern. If the product you're looking at has multiple sizes, patterns can be sought

    Thanks for your interest in our project Victor. The paving on this project is full color bluestone laid in a random pattern. The sizes of the stone range from 12"x12" up to 30"x36". Good luck with your project.

    Hi Leone, We love this backyard too! It is a custom gunite spa. Our client uses it as a plunge pool to cool off in the summer and as a hot tub the rest of the year. We have an auto cover for security and a bit of energy conservation. The mechanicals are located outdoors behind the evergreens. The spa runs year round. On other projects we have located the mechanicals inside. We would be happy to discuss your project in greater detail. Please feel free to call. 630-759-3500.

    This is a great backyard space. You could also use an 8' x 8' fiberglass tub to keep cost of the pool/hot tub down. The fiberglass tub has many differnet color and tile options. They look fabulous when all finished. You could use this space all year round with proper mechanics or you can close it down for the late winter months. If you have any other questions please let us know.

    Thank you for your interest in our project. The pergola was custom designed for this site. Specific plans are not available. If you are located in the Chicago area we would be happy to assist in the planning and construction of your own custom pergola.
