When considering upgrading your outdoor living space, there are so many options to choose from. It realistically varies based on your individual needs and wants. Do you want a new patio with a built-in firepit? Or, are you interested in installing a deck big enough for entertaining? Whatever you decide, Smithwell Construction can help you design and build the outdoor living space of your dreams! Here are a few ideas that we think you might like:
- A Deck: A deck can not only enhance the look and feel of the house, but also adds a great space to be able to enjoy the outdoors in the comfort of your own home. Traditional decks go straight out from the second level back door area, giving a square or rectangular space to work with. New deck designs allow for the deck to either wrap around the entire house or having a more functional area. You can also have a private balcony coming off the master bedroom to give a more private experience.
- An Outdoor Fireplace: An outdoor fireplace can take your porch to the next level. It’s the perfect solution for those who not only enjoy a nice crackling fire during the summer but one in the winter as well when you can stay toasty warm. If you don’t want an entire fireplace a firepit can be installed with comfortable seating all around it. Just be aware of any burn bans your town might have.
- An Extended Roof: If your home doesn’t naturally have a roof and extended roof can be installed to ensure your porch stays covered. You can also extend an existing porch or have one installed to give you a spot to enjoy sitting outside without worrying about getting too much sun or getting rained on.
- An Outdoor Kitchen: For those who are passionate about cooking or enjoy entertaining on the porch an outdoor kitchen is the greatest solution! The cook can stay present with the rest of the group outside as the food is cooking and you can create a bigger meal than just what the grill can handle.
