Here’s the “digital edition” of the October Cincinnati House Trends magazine, their Before & After issue featuring a number of Kitchen makeovers. We have an ad on page 66 introducing our Louvered Roof Patio Covers.
Check out the new Louvered Roofs page launched on the Distinctive Patios site. This highlights the benefits of our innovative new patio cover that lets you take control of your outdoor environment.
This project shows how our innovative louvered roof systems can fit into just about any outdoor environment. From simple to exotic. Here, our client designed and built a beautiful space to entertain and relax in. As the project unfolded we worked together to ensure that everything came together just right. Click on the thumbnails for a closer look. What do you think?
Our Louvered Roof customers love the control they have over their outside environment. When it’s raining or really hot, the party can go on with a click on the remote control. Click on the picture to see it operate. Also, you can see a slide show and learn more about this innovative product at the manufacturer’s website.
Wanted to share one of our favorite patios. The beautiful landscaping and intimate design make it a wonderful place to entertain….well into the fall with the warmth from the Fire Pit!
OK and Thelma (both ninety something) are not only our most senior customers to date, but also have a work ethic that can set an example for all of us. Out at the crack of dawn, they tend to their beautiful flowers, lawns and large vegetable garden, just like they have for decades. If our crew doesn’t arrive early enough, OK will already be out there doing something useful on our project. He even let us borrow his prized Ford tractor to haul dirt. They are wonderful folks and we’re happy to work with them to rebuild the brick patio that they have outlived.
Just before the beginning of Distinctive Patios’ “spring fever”, Rick was part of a team that traveled to Panajachel, Guatemala to help build a concrete house for a single mom and her daughters.
To give you some perspective on the construction practices used….all the blocks were cut by hand with machetes and all concrete was delivered/mixed by hand! Below are several pictures from the trip. The smiling faces help you understand how easy it is to make a real difference in a child’s life and what real poverty is. If you’d like to sponsor a child’s education or help fill some other need, you can contact the Mayan Families organization
. No question….you will get more than you give as you provide hope for the future. One other note….after the trip….Distinctive Patios donated a hand-held grinder to make the work a bit easier.
Here’s the “digital edition” of the March Cincinnati House Trends magazine, their Contemporary / City Living issue. We have an ad on page 28 featuring custom outdoor living environments with several new fire pit designs completed in the fall. Also, House Trends has a web site is loaded with articles and resources for the latest trends around the home.
Come see us at Booth #141 tomorrow on the last day of the Cincinnati Home & Garden Show at the Duke Energy Convention Center. We’re right between the cool car and the bar! Our innovative motorized louvered roof pergola has been quite a hit at the show this year.
