As seen on HGTV's Vacation House for Free, Matt and his team created a relaxing oasis for these homeowners with a back deck that overlooks the marsh and the lake beyond it. The succulents and other plants in the large planters help to add the feeling of a luxury escape.
Tucked into the center of the home is a custom Ipe deck with stunning views of the marsh beyond. A sleek swimming pool complements the modern space and invites the owners to cool off on a particularly hot day.
