My own Gallery!

 Outdoor Covered Patio-Gallery!
I am so tired and sore!  To think that this time last year that I was almost dead!  Over the weekend I worked 12 hours on Saturday and 12 hours on Sunday to complete the roof system on a metal structure that I built almost two years ago!  Because of the curves almost every piece had to be cut.
   This job began about two years ago when I was originally called upon to build a deer fence around the backyard of this residential property.  That took some time and they liked my design, fabrication and installation skills.  We got to know each other and I shared my websites with them.
   One afternoon over coffee I was asked what might look good in their backyard for some type of covered patio structure?  It was the ideal opportunity!  "Jerry, what would you do?"
This is what I did andit is all highlighted with copper trim.  Now to finish it will require lots of hanging plants
and copper/stainless steel art panels in the front section towards the house.
 The Center Section is clear polycarbonit
   It is not often that an artist gets to create space, build the room where the art will hang.  I am thankful and appretiative to be given the opportunity and to be able to do this.  My clients are happy with how this turned out.  Now I get to build the art for this gallery that I created!

When this is totally finished I will post some more pictures.

Truly stunning work, Jerry. I can't wait to see how you design the art to make this patio/garden/yard space a fabulous showplace!
