We have broken ground on a major new feature for our homestead. I'm in the process of constructing a 20' x 25' covered pavilion directly in front of he house.
Pavilion: Free-standing structure sited a short distance from a main residence, whose architecture makes it an object of pleasure. Large or small, there is usually a connection with relaxation and pleasure in its intended use.
Nilda and I are very excited about this new addition. It will be a great place to socialize and visit with our friends. As the front yard is quite large and significantly set back from the street, the pavilion will form the centerpiece of this semi-private space. It will perform the function of a large traditional front porch. We intend the front yard area to be our entertaining space while the back yard will remain our private utility space where we can garden and keep the ducks and chickens.
