Project Spotlight: Pergola at the Bay Club in Mattapoisett, MA

This summer we installed a new pergola awning at the Bay Club in Mattapoisett, MA. The outdoor dining area was in need of some shade, and we built a custom awning out of our favorite Sunbrella┬«. The decision-makers selected Burgundy, a lovely deep color that matches the existing patio umbrellas – and some of the flags on the surrounding golf course!

A pergola awning is an unusual project for us – the structures we build are usually based more on tension than frames. A pergola is a very nice option, however, and provides a permanently-installed platform for a seasonal fabric cover. The pergola frame provides a pleasant outdoor space that protects from harsh and direct sunlight, while an optional cover offers even more protection from sunlight and also from rain and weather.

For even more protection, we installed some custom clear sidewalls last week. These sidewalls provide protection from bugs, as well as protection from wind and rain without hindering the view. The clear “glass” is actually a thick-gauge clear vinyl, which is very sturdy and easy to clean.┬á Clear glass sides also help to preserve the view while extending the outdoor season, as they will block autumn winds and interiors can be heated to a certain point to maintain a cozy atmosphere.

If you’d like a pergola awning or some custom sidewalls for your own outdoor space, you know where to find us!
