Todd and Melissa Roderick, Xenia were looking for an outside entertaining space. Not only that, but a space that would provide intimacy and some weather protection. We designed and built this cedar-wrapped pavilion with a masonry fireplace and outdoor kitchen that gives plenty of sheltered entertaining, while still connecting to other outdoor spaces for larger gatherings. Areas of patio are separated by low steps to create interests. A self-contained, freestanding water feature provided subtle background noise, while an open firepit entertains seasonal gatherings.
