With the amount of time that people are spending at home due to COVID-19, as well as the proven health benefits of exposure to nature, there has been an increased purchase of furniture, accessories and building products for their Outdoor Living Spaces. When the right features are added to the home and landscaping, such as a Pergola or Gazebo, this could increase home value. When the feature incorporates the go-to timber Western Red Cedar, this value is further enhanced with the aesthetics and living experience transformed.

People are spending more time at home, spending more money on their outdoor spaces to make it their destination oasis, and enjoying building their own projects (DIY). This trend could also be the perfect addition to consider in the outdoor design of new build residential projects.
