(Continued on page 16) Outdoor Living on Parade Kirby knew that teaming up with the right contractor and supplier would be critical to the project's success, and enlisted contractors Mark and Daniel Meador with Unique Hardscapes and Tim Martin at Lee Brick and Block to complete the installation. He had worked with both companies in the past, and knew they could be counted on to complete the project on time and create a unique area his clients would love. Design The design called for multiple levels in the large backyard. The main level included a kid- ney shaped pool connected to a basketball court, while a lower level nearby housed a hot tub cov- ered by a pergola. An upper landing connected the garage to the main residence, and a raised deck defined a covered dining space with a seat wall and fire pit nearby. Top: The design and construction teams that crafted the outdoor living area at this Bowling Green, Ky., residence had just eight weeks to transform the backyard for viewing in a local "Parade of Homes" event. The main level includes a large kidney shaped pool with a basketball water court. Left: The expansive backyard project is comprised of multiple hardscaped tiers and includes a pool, hot tub, fire pit, an outdoor dining area and gathering spaces. Capped seat walls surround the circular fire feature, and a lower level beyond the pool leads to a hot tub sheltered beneath a pergola (left). i r b y B u i l d e r s i n B o w l i n g G r e e n , K e n t u c k y , h a s b e e n b u i l d i n g a n d r e m o d e l i n g h o m e s s i n c e 2 0 0 2 .
