Multiple water features combine on this Minnesota patio with a pergola: a water fountain, hot tub and an outdoor shower. The fountain, which has underwater lighting, and flooring are made of New York bluestone. The pergola is made of fiberglass columns, cedar timbers and wood beam rafters. The outdoor shower was added by Southview Design in the second phase.
A modern take on the classic shingle-style home, a flat metal roof replaces the classic sloped, cedar or cypress-clad roof in the backyard. Shaded areas offer relief from the intense midday sun or a random rain shower while a long dining table provides a place for outdoor meals.
Peeking around the corner of this cedar-shingled home, visitors arrive at an elevated wood deck on a concrete paver and gravel pathway. The pastoral feel of the property is emphasized in the type of materials used, and the outdoor shower built into the side of the home is a reminder of its proximity to the sea.
