Project Tour: Romantic Master Bathroom in Bridgetown

Posted by Mike Hendy on Tue, Jan 5, 2021

While we all like a good amount of sun, a western-facing back yard without shade can be a bit of a hassle to enjoy on the brightest summer days. That was the case for this Loveland home and it's existing deck.
