Building a Country covered Deck at Domaine Le Jardin des Patriotes

In 2009, we made a major house renovations. Our house was built in 1952.

To restore a country style, we decided to carry out to the construction of a large front porch or veranda that will wrap-around the house.

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

In addition, we built a shed under the raised deck to store firewood and outdoor furnitures.
