Calvert Property Vancouver WA
Family . . . Family . . . Family . . .
Yep, it’s all about Family in this Backyard Living Space. We’ve all heard, “Families are forever” & “Home Sweet Home”- Right? Covid regulations certainly helped this family realize both those quotes as they stood the test of being isolated together in their home.
However, during the Pandemic, the Calvert’s seclusion space was doubled. Their Family Backyard Living Space was completed at-the-start of quarantine and it gave them the “breathing room” this large family needed. What before was muddy lawn & flowerbeds, became an extension of their indoor living. Designed to be able to step-right-out-the-sliding-backdoor into another family living space – it became a go-to hang-out. The 4 kids attended classes outside at the long bar, studied and read on the couches, relaxed in the spa and expended their ‘cooped-up’ anxiety on the trampoline.
Mom reflects on their time together as very special – attributing the new outdoor wing to surviving Covid better than most and drawing Her Family closer together.
See how this small backyard was transformed into a cohesive, useable living space for a family who was drawn closer by spending time outdoors together.
