Do you have a small outdoor space that you aren’t putting to great use? We’re not talking about a large space or a focal point in your back yard. Let’s take a look at that small unused area at the side of your house. Have you thought about creating your very own hide away? What about a beautiful patio cover over, say, a hot tub? A place for you to relax and vive your tired muscles in a cozy out-of-the-way area. I’ve always thought it would be romantic to unwind in a balmy hot tub and watch it snow around me. A solid cover would keep the snow just out of reach. Or maybe just a secluded spot to hang your hammock and read or daydream. A lattice cover would provide a nice mix of sun and shade. Either way, that bare spot beside your home will suddenly add value to your home and to your peace of mind.
