ShadeFX Adds Function and Flair to Cape Associates ‘Waterfront Home’

Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are only a few of the places within the Cape Cod peninsula that are spoiled with unique maritime character and charming historic cottage colonies. Large swaths of sandy beaches pour into the Atlantic Ocean, making this small piece of mainland America a national treasure and tourist destination. However, beyond the large crowds admiring the wonders and simplicity of the old colonial world are private abodes tucked just beyond the reach of mainland explorers. Thanks in large part to Cape Associates Inc. our team at ShadeFX were able to help make one personal paradise just a bit more idyllic.

The custom home was built overlooking the Namequoit River in Orleans, MA. The homeowners, inspired by their proximity to the river and the Atlantic Ocean, requested that Cape Associates Inc. build a personal outdoors space that could accommodate a patio, pool, hot tub and outdoor seating. Not a group willing to step back from a challenge, Cape Associates Inc. conjured up a beautiful design that went above and beyond the expectations of their clients. However, in order to fully savor the cool breeze and beautiful natural vistas made possible by the design, a pergola was built adjacent to the back of the home and stylishly outfitted with a ShadeFX canopy.

The goal was to provide the homeowners and their guests with an outdoor space that could be utilized during both light rains storms and hot sunny days. A rope operated ShadeFX was mounted to cover approximately 200 sq.ft. Sunbrella was selected as the fabric of choice and the canopy drop was reduced to be similar in size as the pergola’s front supporting beam. This product is not only capable of resisting strong ocean winds and storms, but also serves as a complimentary outdoor feature to the overall design of the backyard space.

Cape Associates shared the following words about working with ShadeFX on this project:

“We recently installed a ShadeFX canopy system in order to add versatility to a poolside pergola. The awning offers our client the flexibility for sun or shade and allows them to maximize the use of their outdoor patio. The ShadeFX canopy that we installed also offers protection from UV rays and is wind and rain resistant, making it an even more valuable feature to the outdoor space.”

We would like to thank this homeowner for allowing ShadeFX to be apart of their paradise, as well as Cape Associates Inc. for including us in their beautiful design.
