With the last days of summer long gone, you may be thinking of the harsh winter months ahead. In a last ditch effort to extend the season, we encourage you to move the party outside! We love how these outdoor living areas can be enjoyed in warm or cool weather.
The best thing about this covered patio addition – besides the rough-hewn timber framing – is that there are retractable Phantom screens that allow the structure to be fully open or closed with the touch of a button. Don’t you just love technology?
Flagstone pavers lead from the rear patio to a simple stone firepit surrounded by Adirondack-style wooden chairs. Picture the sun setting with a fire blazing and a few good friends gathered ’round while sipping on a glass of your favorite adult beverage. Who’s with me?
The arched openings of this fireplace match historic details of the main house. The flagstone patio is so Main Line.
This covered rear porch offers summer shade and cozy fires in late autumn or early spring. Here’s a super-cool feature – the stacked stone fireplace is double-sided! Inside, it’s a pizza oven.
The architect designed this poolhouse so it could be completely open or closed, depending on the season. Sliding barn doors accomplish this feat with architectural appeal. Salvaged timber framing reflects the farmhouse aesthetic of the main house.
