All design elements came together to create the perfect poolside retreat with year-round appeal. When it’s too chilly to relax in the shade after a dip in the pool, the homeowners and their family and friends like to gather around the cozy fireplace for s’mores and football on the outdoor TV.

Case Indianapolis Designer

A Poolside Retreat

Carmel, IN

Space Remodeled
330 Square Feet


The Concept

The homeowners were constantly battling the intense sun and heat throughout the day and into the evening. This lack of backyard shade led the homeowners to add a new covered structure with a rustic design and prominent view of the pool and scenic lake.

Structural Design

Once the foundation work was complete, decorative cedar columns were installed to support the roof. Handmade rough sawn cedar trusses with black painted steel gusset plates were installed to provide additional structural support while also adding to the desired look
