A patio pavilion is similar in functionality to a pool house except that it is open on the sides and allows for a nice breeze to move through the space. The pavilion is a free standing structure that adds architectural appeal to your backyard living space.
One really great option for this structure is to screen it in for the ultimate in comfort and relaxation. Once screened in you and your guests can enjoy the outdoors without the nuisance of pests. Your pavilion can be built to include an outdoor kitchen, a bathroom, and a fireplace.
The ceiling can be finished with hardy plank painted to resemble your existing home or pine tongue and groove stained for a more rustic appeal. The posts can be wrapped in hardy plank and painted or an option for solid cedar posts can be utilized to complete the rustic look.
