New American Remodel 2019 pool area

Visitors can enjoy the pool from the covered outdoor living room and bar, the second-floor outdoor loft, or an adjacent patio (not shown). The outdoor living room can also open to the great room for entertaining. Remodeler Michael Gardner designed the space so that it gets direct sun in only the morning, minimizing solar gain during the hot Vegas summers.

Remodeler Larry Rych's backyard oasis

Not wanting to obscure any of the view with vertical balusters, Rych used ½-inch tempered glass underneath the 1x6 deck railings. The view of the neighbor’s house, however, was purposely obscured to extend the illusion of a backyard oasis. The 4-by-7-foot cultured stone wall, angled at 45 degrees on the northeast corner of the deck, gives the chef and his guests their desired privacy.
