Elegant patio brings the party outside

Written by: Phyllis Gricus

Jay and Christine Henderson built an exquisite French Manor home in which to live their family life; then they built an extension of their home to live more of it—outside. Their new patio offers outdoor rooms that blend with the architectural style of the home and function like indoor rooms while giving the family many opportunities to commune both with nature and friends.
