Preamble:

Build wooden deck / terrace and covered Victorian style wrap-around porch at Domaine Le Jardin des Patriotes

In 2009, we made a major renovations to the house built in 1952.

To restore a country style, we decided to carry out a large gallery that will wrap-around the house.

So, enjoy the beautiful view of the Saguenay River and Fjord, we also built a huge patio / terrace behind the property.
