A new covered deck sounds great, but you might be worried your steep hill will be an issue. Or you might think your windows could prevent the construction of a covered roof structure. The secret is, most times your dream backyard is possible, but a contractor that lacks vision and experience could cause you to waste valuable time and waste your hard-earned money. This is why choosing the right partner is important!
We know visualization is a crucial step when transforming your backyard. This is why we help you create a custom 3D design and handle all the heavy lifting with our detailed, skilled craftsmanship to complete your project. Our award-winning design/build experience and appreciation for architecture allow us to tackle even the most challenging projects and guide our clients to a solution that delivers their dream outdoor living space. Here are a few myths about building outdoor living spaces:
Most homeowners believe they need a large flat yard to build a new outdoor living space, but that’s just not true! With a small 15′ deep area we helped the Nowak family design and build the perfect outdoor living space in Limerick, Pennsylvania.
With a custom 3D design we showed the homeowners how to maximize their space by building up rather than out. The new low-maintenance TimberTech composite deck features a chef-caliber outdoor kitchen with a stainless steel outdoor grill, a custom glass tile backsplash, an outdoor-rated refrigerator, plenty of storage, and more!
An attached roof system will extend the use of your outdoor living space and also provide shelter from the rain, wind, and sun so you can spend more time outdoors. But oftentimes, homeowners won’t add an attached roof system because they worry it will block natural light from entering their home. We know natural light is important!
This is why we helped the Bartkavage family design and build an A-frame style roof with skylights to allow natural light to filter back into the covered deck space and inside the house.
Relocating your septic system is a very involved process and expensive project. But oftentimes, relocating your septic tank to build your new outdooring living space is unnecessary.
Building over or around a septic field is not ideal, but a design-first approach is essential to make sure you don’t waste money. Since zoning ordinances will require that you maintain certain setbacks from an underground septic system, we will use your custom 3D design to show exactly how the space will look and affect the surrounding areas. This expedites the approval process and makes sure everyone is comfortable and confident with the project’s safety before construction begins.
Planning a new backyard should be a very exciting experience, but we get that this is a significant investment. So you might feel overwhelmed thinking about all the important details that will complete your dream space. You are not alone!
