Preamble
Building a raised deck and victorian porch or veranda at Domaine Le Jardin des Patriotes


In 2009, we made a major house renovations. Our house was built in 1952.

To restore a country style, we decided to carry out to the construction of a large veranda or porch that will wrap-around the house.

So, enjoy the beautiful view of the Saguenay River and Fjord, we also built a huge deck / patio / terrace behind the property.
