The objective of the homeowners was to create a contemporary Italian retreat. The old style exterior with rustic stone and peaked rooflines blends seamlessly with old trees and lush greenery of the neighbourhood, while the interior offers a striking juxtaposition. Clean lines, uncluttered spaces and strong pops of colour define the contemporary interior design.

Garage Door Arbor - great way to increase curb appeal is with an arbor over the garage door. A manual post hole digger is an excellent option for footings near a driveway as to not damage the surrounding concrete. Larger capacity saws will give you a clean single cut for large timber when compared to the need for multiple cuts from standard circular saws.

The dream for this family was somehow fitting a pool, spa, fireplace, larger patio areas, and also some grass for the kids to play on all in a very small back yard! It was a challenge but all was accomplished with beautiful results. In fact, this project is featured in the 2009 Fall issue of Luxury Pools Magazine.
ultimate pool & patio!
