One of the best parts of our job here is brainstorming new pool house designs to keep our styles fresh. The Siesta Poolside Bar (everyone’s favorite little pool cabana) is a great example of this.
When we first released the Siesta about 10 years ago, it came standard with a hip roof design (and a myriad of siding, bar counter, and interior options.) A little over 5 years ago, we introduced the Siesta with an a-frame roofline.
And now, we have 2 more styles we’d love to introduce you to, which are almost a year in the making.
Nonprofit work is a fulfilling endeavor for many people. However, involving yourself in nonprofit charity projects may seem intimidating from the outside looking in. Luckily, it is often an easier task than it might appear. There are many relatively simple charity projects that you can develop and manage from the comfort of your own home.
With the summer in full swing and more states extending lockdowns amidst COVID-19 surges, more people are turning to their garden as a source of comfort and joy. There's something remarkably relaxing about reconnecting with nature, nurturing plants, and maintaining a beautiful lawn.
With the renewed focus on gardening, many people are looking at buying or upgrading their garden shed. After all, if you're going to be gardening more from now on, it's probably worth getting some extra space.
The pergola has seen a big surge in popularity the past few years as outdoor living continues to be a huge trend in home improvement. Of course, the pergola has been around for a LONG time (with origins possibly dating back to Ancient Egypt!), but it’s also one that’s most often confused with other, similar structures.
People often mix up pergolas with arbors, trellises, and pavilions and aren’t always sure just what a pergola is for, or what it even looks like.
You may think it’s a flaw in the timber used, but rest assured, it’s not! Cracking and checking is a normal part of timber frame buildings, fences, and furniture and is very rarely a result of any structural issues. Cracking and checking of timber is actually a very natural part of the life cycle of wood – even once it’s been cut, shaped, and prepared for building. It isn’t an indication of defects in your wood, though sometimes customers assume so.
Between the time and money it takes to get a storage shed (or garden shed, pool house, or garage) installed on your property, it makes sense that you want it to last as long as possible. Too many people make the mistake of thinking any building will just last forever once up, with no maintenance or preventative measures.
Whether you’ve already purchased a new storage shed or you’re considering building one in the near future, it’s important to think about the design and style of not only the structure itself but also the surrounding land. Although some people feel that a shed is, well, just a shed, we feel that just because a storage building is a practical item, doesn’t mean it necessarily has to look plain.
When it comes to picking the right storage building, it’s often in your best interest to consider all of your options before selecting one that’s right for you and your home. While you might be overwhelmed with choices and you might think it’s best to pick the one that looks the nicest, there’s much more to think about before you sign the building contract. This week, we thought we’d highlight some questions for you to ask yourself that will help you to choose an ideal storage structure.
