Each of our projects has its own challenges, and some might even be chiefly remembered for their challenges. On this Farmer’s Branch pergola project, however, we saw opportunity. We often speak of extending indoor spaces to the outdoors, but here we threw in a bit of the opposite. The back of the home features glass doors and windows with transoms, which allowed for a lot of natural light – and with that light, heat! Now that the shade of the pergola extends to the interior, these homeowners will benefit from a more comfortable indoor space on full-sun days and will see energy cost savings.
