The Lure of Outdoor Living

Knight Strategies designed this outdoor living space, situated below a guest cottage on the shores of Lake Lure in North Carolina, and installed most of the elements.

The pergola is supported by mortared stone columns that were veneered with sea mist stone to match the existing stone foundation
from the 1950s.
