Mandated to Work From Home but needing more than four walls and a window? Dreaming of a place to work, lounge, and relax? This is a staycation at its best. The Homeowners wanted an entertainment space that would work for family, friends and client gatherings. After a visit to the local Bomanite Licensees showroom, Heritage Bomanite, located in Fresno, CA, to review samples, colors, and systems they knew they could bring their grand vision to life. In wanting to create a backyard oasis, they chose several different systems in complimenting colors that provided an enticing atmosphere for outdoor living year round.
The expansive backyard pool deck and patio of 2,200 square feet were cast-in-place and stamped with the Bomacron Slate Texture for the majority of the space. Bomanite Sand Color Hardener with a Light Brown Release Agent were used to provide a natural look for the Slate pattern. The textured concrete deck provides slip-resistance and durability. Two important benefits of the Bomanite Imprint System.
The Bomanite Exposed Aggregate Antico Process System was incorporated and used to separate the gathering areas, creating cozy niches. The stacked stone outdoor firepit visiting spot with seat walls and steps were given the decorative concrete treatment as well. This is one of the perfect spots in this home oasis for distancing of family members during Remote Meetings. The firepit also adds a warm inviting touch well into the late evening after work is done.
The Cabana houses a hi-end Top Chef’s kitchen with a polished concrete countertop, built in fireplace, four TV’s, hanging heaters and multiple places for dining, visiting and entertaining top-notch guests. The flooring for the seating area was proposed using the Antico Process in a Light Brown color with Sawcuts to provide that element of separation and design, creating distraction free space for every family member.
Comparable in appearance to natural travertine or manufactured cast stone, the Antico Process can emulate and compliment these types of higher end finishes in a cost-effective fashion, providing that designer feel and look. The Exposed Aggregate Antico Process is best suited for exterior applications and works well with the Bomanite Imprint Systems, stamped concrete in lighter colors that are often used for pool decks, patios and other areas where light reflectivity is desired.
The homeowner’s remodel also included a pool waterfall, a Bocce Ball court and outdoor restroom to complete the overall design; making working from home a breeze and a dream a reality!
