Outdoor Functionality

Project Overview

Plan: Create a comfortable outdoor living space perfect for entertaining and family gatherings.

Challenge: The homeowners wanted to be able to cook, lounge and entertain in their new space.

Result: Creating a full outdoor living space with a usable kitchen was a big endeavour but we figured out a way to incorporate all of the necessary items for full relaxation in an extended living area. We added a natural gas fireplace, a large hot tub with a metal and glass enclosure, a spacious seating area and of course a huge Napolean BBQ with a custom pergola over top of it. The outdoor kitchen was complete with a granite countertop and mission-style black hardware.

To highlight the various areas we added accent lighting, including under-stair lighting off the deck.
