Hearth & Home August 2019

Parting Shot: Rustic Modern

Photos courteSy: ©2019 stout design build.

A GREAT USE OF SPACE! The area is only 25 x 25 ft., but there is a place to cook (built-in grill, refrigerator, cabinets), a place to eat (cement table for eight, anyone?), a place to relax (deep-seating in front of a roaring fire).

The flooring is Ipe wood decking; the removable fence is in compliance with city code; the plants are all drought resistant, and there is also an edible garden.
