With more than a dozen family members living nearby, Ashley and Steve would love to use their backyard for entertaining. Even though they have plenty of space, their hand-me-down outdoor furniture and small patio can hardly fit more than a handful of people. They need more seating and functional food preparation space so that they can enjoy summers in Milwaukee with their family and friends. Jeremy and his team at Flux Design take Ashley and Steve's backyard to the next level. First they install bluestone pavers and a hand-crafted fire pit. This patio area transitions into an enormous deck attached to the back of the house. As the centerpiece of this incredible outdoor transformation, Flux builds a custom tree sculpture. Made entirely of steel tubing, the 12-foot tall sculpture towers over the backyard and adds a unique artistic element. Flux also creates an oversized picnic table with durable Ipe hardwoods, and a deck handrail with 'pig fence' framing. The backyard is finished with a grilling area, stylish landscaping, and a mahogany wall for additional privacy.
