CASEWORK X HOME DEPOT - Transform a basic driveway into a PRIVATE oasis

 
 SITE PLAN

SITE PLAN

What's a Ranchelow? Imagine if a 1966 Portland Ranch and Bungalow had a baby. That's what my newest home is, purchased in December 2018 with original everything, for better or worse! The home has details of each and isn't fully true to one style. The property is long and narrow and needs a finished outdoor space and privacy from a busy street. I'm adding a fence, planters for a vegetable garden and turning the driveway into a private patio space with room for a lounge area, grill, dining and lots of plants.  The Rancheloasis! 

The fence will be a horiztontal slat and a combination of 6' high and 3'-6" high to work with current building codes on the property. I'm working with a local steel fabricator to make some custom driveway and entry gates. The driveway gate will have an arbor that extends the 14' width and everything will be modern in style with a mix of wood and steel.
