It required the pouring of reinforced concrete walls which where tied into the surrounding ledge. This gave us a 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 all the stone elements and brought some plant color and textures into the living space. We Installed a high tech fiberglass spa with all the bells and whistles into the corner. This included custom cut and thermaled blue stone coping and stairs. This spa also included a salt water chlorinator, UV light, Pentair Intelchem, Intelchlor, and an Easytouch controller. This created 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. It flanks the fireplace and blocks the space from a busy secondary 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 to bring the build together..
