This ranch-style house had additions and remodels seamlessly blended into the existing footprint. Flowing effortlessly from the indoors, the outdoor area transformed into a tranquil entertaining space.

Utilizing the landscape, the design incorporated a large pool, raised deck and custom pergola for poolside shade. In order to soften the hardline design, fabric is added to the poolside structure.

“The ShadeFX canopy was the perfect addition to this backyard oasis. Our clients are extremely pleased with the look and functionality.  The wood structure and light-colored retractable canopy pairs perfectly with the design of the residence.”

– Ruth Metcalf, Meryl Kramer Architect

ShadeFX manufactured an 18’ x 8’ retractable shade for the custom wood structure. Opting for a rope drive, the Sunbrella White fabric provides the perfect shade when lounging by the pool. During the day, the homeowners can extend the shade for protection from the glaring sun. At night, they can retract it for a romantic evening under the shining stars.

Pairing the exterior with royal floral accents and a sparkling pool instantly makes for an inviting space. In particular, the custom pergola paired with a retractable shade protect the best seats in the house.
