Here is a recap of this project including highlights and challenges.

The outdoor living space is located on the view side of the home and has tremendous long-range mountain views. The scope of the outdoor project consisted of the following spaces and functional areas: a pool with an infinity edge, hot tub with vanishing edge, fire pit with recessed seating area, an outdoor kitchen with a steel trellis structure, and a covered seating area for TV and fireplace viewing. All of this complete with beautiful landscaped areas.

The greatest challenge was the location of the structure on the steep mountainside and the ground consisting of mostly clay. The team members were required to do extensive engineering work, hiring soil engineers and civil engineers to make sure the structure was designed appropriately for the location.
