Creating a Perfect Social Space with Motorized Patio Shades

Creating a Perfect Social Space with Motorized Patio Shades

A Case Study: Boathouse on Big Cedar Lake, West Bend, WI

Our latest project took us to a beautiful cabin on Big Cedar Lake in West Bend, WI. Our customer envisioned transforming their boathouse into an inviting social space, seamlessly blending the charm of the lakefront with modern comfort. A key element of this vision was installing a glass garage door, but the challenge was how to screen such a large opening without compromising on aesthetics or functionality. That’s where our expertise with Motorized Patio Shades came into play.

Understanding the Client's Needs

The client wanted a space where they could entertain guests while enjoying unobstructed views of the lake. However, the open design posed a challenge: how to keep out the bugs without spoiling the view or the social ambiance. After discussing the various options, the client decided that Motorized Patio Shades were the ideal solution. With a single call to us, the project was set into motion.

Seamless Collaboration and Precise Execution

To ensure the perfect fit, we collaborated closely with various contractors involved in the project. The coordination required meticulous attention to detail, particularly in measuring the masonry and carpentry work. Our team worked intensely, ensuring that every measurement was precise and that the integration of the Motorized Patio Shades with the glass garage door was flawless.

Despite the complexity, our team’s expertise ensured that the installation process was smooth and efficient. The result was a seamless integration of the shades that provided the desired functionality without compromising on aesthetics.

Anticipating the Final Reveal

While the project is still underway, the early results are promising. The Motorized Patio Shades have already enhanced the boathouse, providing a perfect blend of style and utility. They offer protection from bugs, UV rays, and glare while maintaining the boathouse’s open, airy feel.

We are excited to return once the project is fully completed to document and showcase the final transformation. This project not only highlights the versatility of our Motorized Patio Shades but also our commitment to customer satisfaction and quality craftsmanship.
