Celebration Paver Installation Nears Completion

Our transformation of the pool area in this Golfpark Drive home in Celebration is almost complete. Unfortunately our camera with the pictures of the "before" were left in the lanai over the weekend and someone took advantage of a great deal on an "abandoned" camera. Suffice it to say that we have rarely seen more of a hodge-podge of material with at least five different kinds of pavers, many of them poorly laid. We have replaced them with absolutely beautiful gold range travertine pavers and the results are outstanding. When combined with the new landscaping over the next few days, the results will be truly amazing. Florida Pool Area-Extreme Makeover Edition, are you ready for you close-up?

If you're not familiar with it, Celebration is the town created in 1994 to help fulfill Walt Disney's vision of EPCOT, Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. The imagineers brought in some of the world's top architects, designers and urban planners to help them build a self contained idealistically conceived community. The result is quite satisfying. For more information in depth about Celebration read the complete article in our Florida Life and Times Blog!

Winter Park Landscaping of Mid-Century Modern Continues

Liza and Mike Jennings home before work begins.
Their home after the driveway and some of the landscaping is installed.

The installation included these 6x6 ft. squares of pavers offset to lead up to the front door.
