As soon as I saw you I knew an adventure was about to happen. - Winnie the Pooh Oh, what joy! Check out the White's wedding celebration, the first at Standing Boy Creek Farms. What a privilege to cover such a beautiful celebration!
Snow is finally melting, the sun has come out, and we're all as excited as the birds are to get out into the fresh air! Many of you have already started on your backyard planning, such as cleaning up the debris from the winter or preparing the soil for gardening. Some have plans to expand their outdoor living space by adding a deck or patio or putting in a timber structure. Don't have any plans yet? That's okay. There's still plenty of time to decide what to do with your back yard space before spring comes in full bloom. For those who live in more balmy climates have the benefit of warm weather pretty much year-round. Pools are extremely popular in these areas, such as Florida and Louisiana. We have a gorgeous louvered roof pergola to share with you from Texas! This pool is beautifully located at the end of [...]

As winter starts to fade away and spring starting peeking in, it's a great time to celebrate by spending time out in the pavilion! It's never too early or too late in the year to have fun outside, that's for sure. Even in the middle of winter, you can still enjoy your timber structure, like these siblings did! A popular addition for backyards is a fire pit or fire place. We'll be sharing a couple of projects with you that shows a couple different ideas of how you can use a fire pit along with your outdoor living area! This family created a whole new "room" outside that is the perfect gathering place for all ages. This 14' x 20' pavilion looks great with the Champion profile and finished in Early American stain. The arched knee braces sets it out from the rock wall. Strategically placed just off to the [...]
Walking on the lush green grass and soaking in the warm sun, you can't help but stare up at the rich blue sky. The leaves rustle in the breeze as the clouds roll by. Looking around the backyard, the flowers are just starting to bloom along the pergola while birds and butterflies flit to and fro. A quick slip on the ice jolts you out of your blissful imagination. The cold, harsh reality hits you as you regain your balance. (Sighs)......it's still winter! If you're like me, you're tired of winter and wish that spring were here now already. One thing that will help winter go by faster is to start planning for spring. You are probably thinking about all the things that you want to do once the weather starts getting warm again. Remember, good things come to those who wait...but better things come to those who PLAN! From [...]
I know I'm not the only one who is starting to feel a little bit blue from winter. Seems like once Christmas and New Year's comes and goes, winter starts to wear out its welcome. This is especially true for those who are not big into winter sports, such as skiing, snowboarding, etc. What to DO?! In our Backyard Trends Newsletter, we shared a few tips on beating the winter blues. We would like to add a few more suggestions. Here are a few ideas... First of all, get out of the house! Most people who don't enjoy winter so much have reason to complain because they are too cold. If this is the issue, take a look at your wardrobe and see what needs to be added! Add more layers, grab an extra sweater, and slip some gloves on! I am always amazed at how much of a difference [...]
Winter storms are blasting all across the U.S. Snow accumulations range from 0 inches to over 4 feet, depending on where you live. Some are lucky to have nice balmy weather, such as in Florida or California, while others endure freezing, rigid winters, such as in Montana or Minnesota. Most people, however, will experience snow to one degree or another during this winter. How many of you have a patio, porch, or balcony that gets covered with snow and becomes all slippery, thus posing a hazardous situation? I know I don't enjoy hauling in groceries or carrying the baby out to the vehicle while attempting to learn how to ice-skate at the same time. I'd rather leave that to the Olympians and be safe! But certainly nobody can just stay cooped up in their house all winter either. Yes, salting pathways, driveways, and porches will help reduce the slickness and [...]
As 2013 came rolling in, many of us felt that urge to wipe the slate clean and start afresh. Some set resolutions, such as choosing a word they wanted to live by. Others took a step back to set things in order and account for what they've done in the past year. Then there are those who take a look at their dreams and start taking steps to achieve them. Or perhaps they have already realized their dreams and are now looking for new dreams to work towards. My guess is that if you are reading this post, you are here because you are dreaming of your future yard and looking for ideas of how to accomplish that. I can definitely relate. After all, how do you decide which is better for your yard...a pergola or a pavilion? Do you want an arbor, trellis, or gazebo? What kind of timber [...]
It's a lot of work to clean up after a hurricane, especially if it completely destroyed your yard and severely damaged your home. Even now, people are struggling to pull their lives back to normal and rebuild again. Others are just riding the winter out and will decide what to do later. However, the upside of redoing your yard again is that now you get to create the yard of your dreams! Start planning now by drawing up ideas and plans on how you can restore your home/property or better yet, develop something even more beautiful than what you had before. Many, if not all pergolas and outdoor structures were completely damaged or totally blown away from the homes affected by Hurricane Sandy. For those of you who want something stronger and able to withstand high winds, Western Timber Frame is the only company that can [...]
