Baggett Remodel Project

On this project, our goal was to update the exterior of the existing home by adding a screened lower porch and a 2nd floor entertainment porch. We also designed an infinity-edge pool, with full live-in pool house, including 2 bedrms, kitchen, & living area. The pool house is designed with outdoor grilling kitchen, with a circular shaped timber beamed lanai. The pool area includes an outdoor fireplace & waterfalls into pool.
