I am soooooo excited to FINALLY be sharing our just completed and the BIG reveal of The Forest Modern outdoor living space!!! You guys! This project has been a tremendous labor of love that the whole family worked on! I did the full design and the hubby and our boys helped bring it to life. They worked so hard prepping the ground work, moving a huge and HEAVY retaining wall (because someone changed her mind after it had already been built. Pointing the finger at myself). I took a gazillion photos because this setting is so gorgeous. Am I right? Seriously, I love our trees and the peaceful, serene forest view.
Before we dive into all the photos, here’s what the area looked like at the beginning of summer. My boys hard at work! We hired out the brick paver install as well as the stone application on the perimeter ledge wall. But, before all that was able to be done, there was a lot of ground leveling, tamping, digging trenches for electrical and gas lines, and perimeter landscaping.
Drumroll…..welcome to my beautiful contemporary, modern, serene outdoor living. The trees smell like fresh pine, the sound of the bubbling rock water feature in the background, and the stillness of this piece of land we call home.

Kodak photobombing. Just a couple of weeks ago we had a bear walk right across this patio! Yikes!
A special thank you to Lighting Design Company for providing these gorgeous pier mount lights by Hinkley. They light up our forest so pretty at night. We have received so many compliments on them already!
Moving on to our covered patio. I love that we can sit out here during the rain and are protected from the elements.
