Coffered Trellis Ceilings

Coffered trellis ceilings on pergolas bring together architectural style and practical functionality. Originally seen indoors, these designs now find a fitting outdoor application. The structured beams not only enhance the outdoor space but also provide shade and define the pergola's boundaries. The interplay of light and shadow within the coffered trellis adds visual interest, making the pergola a captivating focal point.

Beyond aesthetics, coffered trellis ceilings contribute to the overall atmosphere of a pergola. The repetitive geometric patterns create a sense of order, making the space inviting for relaxation and socializing. Gaps between the beams allow sunlight to filter through, adding a dynamic touch. This makes the pergola suitable for both daytime retreats and evening gatherings. The coffered trellis ceiling blends form and function, turning pergolas into timeless outdoor sanctuaries with architectural finesse and a welcoming ambiance.

Biodiversity with Architectural Garden Structures

Biodiversity in the backyard is crucial for maintaining a healthy and resilient ecosystem. A diverse range of plant and animal species contributes to the overall balance of the environment, promoting natural pest control, pollination, and soil health.

FineHouse Pavilion Shades Historic Cannon in Concord, NC

In the heart of Concord, North Carolina, stands a historical artifact, a 77mm field gun, a German cannon dating back to World War I. This cannon, originally crafted in Germany, found itself embroiled in the conflicts of its time before its journey led it across continents to a new home in Concord, where it is now protected from the elements by a FineHouse pavilion.
