Summer is officially on its way in The Lone Star State and that hot weather we all know so well is upon us. As Texans, we know that we will most likely spend more time outdoors during these warmer months than we will indoors, so is the summer fun calling your name and telling you to build your next outdoor project?
  • Do you need more space?

Many of us may already have an outdoor patio in place. A lot of homes built in our area have patios incorporated into our back yard living spaces. Some of them may not be able to accommodate the size and space we are looking for. Considering an extension of that space may be what you’re looking for. Maybe your home didn’t come equipped with a patio in place at all. No problem, you may want to consider adding a freestanding patio or a completely new patio extension off your home to accommodate your needs. Remember, covered patios don’t have to be directly off your home at all. They can be added to any place in your yard as long as space and easements allow it. Pergolas are also a nice option to consider for this purpose. 

  • Do you have a patio in place but want to add a kitchen?

Who doesn’t love to have an outdoor kitchen?! It’s great for grilling and cooking outdoors, allows for those food odors to be exclusive to the outside, and with great seating, can allow for a spacious extension to entertain guests outside. Adding an outdoor kitchen is a great way of bringing the traditional entertaining of the indoors, outdoors. If you’re considering an outdoor kitchen, think of what your goal is. Are your looking to entertain guests? Consider adding bar seating and maybe an outdoor fridge option for beverages to stay cold. Are you just looking to grill? Then maybe a smaller sized kitchen with a food prep area is for you. There are options to accommodate any need you’re looking for. Knowing what your particular needs are and your goals for building will help you convey to your project developer what exactly you’re looking for. Tradition Outdoor Living can custom tailor the perfect kitchen for your needs. 

  • Adding a fire feature?

Fireplaces and fire pits are a great way to add a nice touch to your outdoor living space. Adding a fire feature can be what you’re looking for, not only can they provide warmth during those cold months but can also provide a nice focal point to elevate any setting. There are many options when it comes to adding a fire feature to your space. Fireplaces can give you that beautiful, intimate setting you’re looking for. On the other hand, fire pits can allow for a more open setting where friends and family can gather around and socialize. With both options you get the versatility of wood burning or gas, the choice is yours.
