Creating an Outdoor Living Space You’ll Love

Posted by Ben Thompson on 03.28.15

With warmer weather on the horizon, we can’t help but get excited about spending time outdoors. One of the best places to do that is in your own back yard! Expanding your livable space outdoors is an investment that rewards you with beautiful areas to relax with your family and entertain guests. There are all sorts of possibilities: decks, patios, screened porches, gazebos, and sunrooms. If you have been considering an outdoor living space remodel, we’ve got some great ideas to share with you.

The owners of this lovely log cabin home requested an update to their existing unused and unsafe deck. Their vision was to create a "beer garden" atmosphere where they could sit and enjoy the natural views.

An old lumber deck and railings were removed and replaced with Trex composite decking and aluminum railing. A gorgeous cedar pergola brings a rustic yet refined feel to the deck.

A beautiful new deck in a rich, dark Timbertech is accented with a grand lighted staircase. This inviting outdoor living space is the perfect spot for grilling, eating meals and hanging out while enjoying the lovely canopy of trees.

Want an outdoor living space you can enjoy year-round? Consider a sunroom. Thompson Remodeling installed all new Pella Designer windows and doors in this sunroom. A heated tile floor was added to make the colder months more comfortable. We also renovated their existing built-in.
