The Art of Outdoor Living

This wonderful outdoor room sits adjacent to a great room oversized sliding french doors allow easy flow from one room to the next. The modern, coastal-inspired railing is a nice touch in this unique space.

We have been designing and building outdoor rooms for over 14 years now, and we usually build this type of space with every one of our projects. This must come from our own desire and passion for enjoying the great outdoors. We like to sit in front of a roaring fire, while the smell of pinon wood drifts through our neighborhood; watch a football or basketball game, have friends over to eat an oven fired pizza or just take a nap.

Today it’s no problem to have an 80” TV in a space – this one is concealed behind these Antique architectural doors. Over-scaled lanterns and large round windows add to the Beauty of this outdoor room.

We designed and built this outdoor room a few years ago. Our clients have used this space countless times and it is a warm and inviting space. The oversized fireplace is the crowning jewel in the space. Furnishings were hand-picked and the lighting was custom made for the Large – scale of the overall space.

This intimate cabana has a rustic elegance and charm. Reclaimed wood, drystacked stone, custom lighting and unique furnishings all add to the overall ambiance of this room – making it a delightful space to sit and relax in. Of course there’s a TV behind old French architectural doors.

This is a recent addition to one of our extreme makeover homes. The space sits just outside the open concept family room…the access is great with oversized French doors. An outdoor kitchen, dining and seating - this space has it all. The design is fresh and clean, and look at those beautiful ivy topiaries!

Our ingredients for a successful outdoor space: 

o Incorporate a dining space 

o Fireplaces will bring life and beauty to the room – they also take the chill out of the air in the Spring and Fall 

o Today’s oversized flat screen TV’s bring a purpose to the room – what better place to watch Sunday golf, or Saturday college football games – Thunder basketball is also great fun when watched outside 

o Style your space like you would an indoor room – comfortable chairs, a sofa for napping, rugs on the floor – art on the walls – accessorize with fun and unique items 

o Fans and heaters – they will extend you long you comfortably use your space

Happy Gardening -
