Made In The Shade

A Pergola with a louvered roof was felt to be the most appropriate solution and has added new life, space and greater enjoyment of the open air. The roof is designed with one- foot overhangs which greatly increase the shading effect for a comfortable balance, light and dark. A louvered mechanism for fences was divided up into quadrants so that the quadrant over Karen's studio window could be adjusted by hand to allow the sunlight in. At the exterior corners of the Pergola, the posts were tripled giving greater lateral stability as well as additional visual appeal.

This project involved building a shade device on an existing deck.
