A Custom Gazebo On Par With A Championship Golf Course

While researching designs for a starter station for the Saticoy Club's championship golf course in Somis, CA, Manager Robert Nabelberg zeroed in on three high-priority requirements: 1. The design had to be elegant and unique so as to integrate with the spectacular setting and caliber of the course. 2. The structure needed 360-degree visibility to support the lookout function of a starter station. 3. The construction had to withstand the area's intense Santa Ana winds. Watch the video to learn how a custom Octagonal Sunroom Gazebo from Forever Redwood solved all three of these requirements.

Care and Finish – Refinishing your furniture

Forever Redwood furniture is built to last decades in any climate. But, after a few years in the year-round weather, the surface finish will fade and it will not look as sharp as it once did. The wood may dry out some and develop a few surface checks. But, underneath, the wood is still perfect and this video will show you how a weekend project can make any Forever Redwood piece that has been out for years look like the day you first took it out of the box again.
