Location: Des Moines, IA
The pool house at the Iowa Governor's Mansion is being restored to its former glory. WholeTrees is excited to be part of the restoration process and will be providing all of the black locust timbers to reconstruct this beautiful outdoor space. Precise measurements were taken of the existing original stone structure and 3D renderings of the new pergola were created from those field measurements. The pool has been meticulously restored so the final touches are all that remain. New mass timber beams, rafters, and purlins will complete the restoration when they are installed this fall. We love connecting to this space's past and becoming part of its future for generations to come.
