The area where this customer wanted to build his outdoor living space had a 15 foot drop with the potential for flooding from the Mad River. It required the pouring of reinforced concrete walls which were tied into the surrounding ledge. This gave us a large, flat space to work with and no potential of flooding. The patio was laid with large irregular blue stone. 2 large planting beds were created flanking each concrete wall with large pieces of granite. The planting beds soften up the look of the stone elements and bring color and texture into the living space. We installed a high tech fiberglass spa with all the bells and whistles into the corner. This includes custom cut and thermaled blue stone coping and stairs. This spa also includes a salt water chlorinator, UV light, Pentair Intelchem, Intelchlor, and an Easytouch controller. This creates a maintenance free spa which could be controlled by any smart phone or tablet. The full size outdoor fire place was built with a Stone Age Fireplace Kit and veneered with Mountain Field Stone; it really throws the heat into the patio area. A hearth was laid with custom cut granite pavers to play off of the granite planting beds. With a secondary highway in view and privacy an issue, a custom made cedar fence was built to flank the fireplace and block the space from the busy highway. To bring the outdoor living space together with the entry, we laid a random pattern tumbled paver with an accent inlay around the perimeter.
