Yard remodeling amplifies

An outdoor living space
specifically designed for elegance and convenience can transform
a traditional swimming pool setting into a back yard Caribbean
resort. Comfortable outdoor furniture for sitting, reading or
sun-worshipping graces the seating nook of the pool house designed
by W.G. Tait, Inc., opposite page and above. The house's sandy
wall and cabinetry tones, along with its dark metal fixtures,
above middle, bring to mind the seaside cottages of by-gone
days. Landscaping on both pages by Sundown Gardens.
The design of outdoor living spaces is limited
only by the homeowners' imaginations; here, W.G. Tait, Inc. Inc. built
a welcoming gazebo and viewing bench next to the homeowners' private
pond. A fountain provides visual style and aerates the pond for
fish and flora.
An investment in attractive and functional outdoor
furniture makes an outdoor living space more likely to be used
regularly by homeowners, whether for entertaining guests or for
spending time with the immediate family.
Another pool house designed by W.G. Tait, Inc. Inc.,
above and right, invites family and guests to relax over a tropical
drink at the poolside bar, or, on a summer evening, carry on a
casual conversation under the stars.
