With the use of clean lines and strategic material selection, the tired back yard was transformed into a versatile extension of the home with a modern touch. The conveniences of home cooking are extended to the outdoors with the help of an extensive kitchen complete with a wide range of appliances. The large roof structure provides ample protection from the elements for both the dining and outdoor kitchen areas. Can lights within the structure and low voltage lighting throughout the outdoor space provide added functionality and ambiance. The outdoor season is extended with the addition of heaters mounted to the structure's ceiling, along with the incorporation of a natural gas fire pit. Planting beds framing both sides of the patio provide seasonal color throughout the year.
