This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Your home’s living space doesn’t end at the door, it extends into the outdoor space that surrounds it. Yet many people don’t make use of this extra living area.

A recent trends survey indicated that 90% of Americans are taking more advantage of their decks, porches and patios, and considering their outdoor living space more valuable than ever.

Picture yourself entertaining friends by the grill, lounging on your spacious deck, or watching the kids swim from your covered porch. Create a fresh-air kitchen and dining space, entertainment hub, or a relaxing get-away from everyday worries. Your ideas are only limited by the space available.
