Inspired by his garden walks though Chicago, Pete decided to create his own "outdoor room" out of an unused second story balcony.

From Pete:

I thought that building a pergola would be a perfect way to define the space and enclose the area. The balcony is about seven feet by nine feet and is on the south side of the house. I finished the space late last August so this is the first full growing season for the plants. It's still a work in progress and little by little it has become a very nice little sanctuary for us.

Thanks, Pete!
