White is IN! Modern is IN!

Lately we have been getting requests for more modern and minimal fences and structures. But what is also interesting is that many customers are wanting their wood products to be white to fit in with that new modern look. Yes, we have stained cedar fences white! Yes we have built arbors and pergolas and stained them white! Yes we have built wood decks and stained them grey!

I have attached pictures below of a recent pergola project we completed. Here are a few comments about the project.

1) Note that the cedar pergola is stained white. It gives a clean modern look.

2) The cedar pergola has cleaner more modern cuts.

3) The deck which we also built is stained in an off white or grey to contrast from the pergola but still have the modern look.

4) The flagstone path is in grey filled in with grey stone, again to give that modern clean look and tie in to the overall project.

5) We later added some lattice for privacy, guess what stained in white!

Maybe you have been thinking modern and this will give you a few ideas for your next outdoor living project.


Cedar pergola stained white. Cedar deck stained grey.


Note that the flagstone in the path is grey to match the cedar deck and that it is filled in with grey stones. Both contrast the cedar pergola and give a clean, modern look.


Note the cuts and wood layout on this cedar pergola are minimal to go with a modern look.


We later added some lattice to provide a more intimate setting. Cedar lattice stained in white!
