Outdoor Living

When Summer finally hits, New Englanders cannot wait to get outside after being shut inside all winter, and unfortunately rained on throughout the Spring.   Sitting on the deck or patio sipping ice tea…ahhh Summer! Want a great place to entertain outside, or just have a piece of heaven in your own backyard?  Check out these great ideas for outdoor living.

In 2014 this is what was “trending” in outdoor living according to Houzz.com.  We are finding this to still be true, but our customers are adding decks, screened and farmers porches as well.

These clients not only added a patio around their pool, but an attached Pergola for added shade.  How’s that for an outdoor oasis?

With ample seating and many areas to entertain, these homeowners don’t need to escape for the summer.  An outdoor kitchen allows for easy summer living.  Who wouldn’t want a “stay-cation” in this backyard?

This award-winning design not only gives the homeowner a place to relax and watch the world go by on their farmers porch, but to lazily relax by the pool, or enjoy dinner on their deck or screened in porch.

We agree with Houzz.com and think the fire pit has become increasingly popular because one can’t live by pool alone.  Increase your outdoor living year round with a fire pit or outdoor fireplace.  Anyone for s’more’s?


Last but not least, we can’t forget the outdoor kitchen.  This is a gem to add to the crown of outdoor living!  This client didn’t stop at just adding a grill, but a pizza oven as well…mangia!

No matter if you add a deck, porch or patio; increasing your outdoor living space is a great investment in your home and your family.  Want to see how we can make your outdoor dreams come to life?  Give us a call today.
