Birth of a dream home

A collection of outdoor spaces is designed with a growing family in mind

An open-air lanai welcomes guests with a tropical appeal. Padded, colorful furniture urges guests to linger.

Just steps from this back yard pool, a hot tub space offers an additional option for relaxation.

This outdoor kitchen’s stainless steel hood and granite backsplash make smoke and cleanup hassle-free.

Because their pool deck has limited shade, the homeowners wanted an area to escape all the sun they get around their swimming pool.

The hillside location of this construction project provided a few structural challenges and needed to be backfilled to support the outdoor living spaces.

These homeowners wanted a walkway to surround their home. Iron light fixtures accentuate the walkway in front of the garage doors.

This massive tree was saved during construction and serves as a stunning anchor to the circular drive.

Square-cut stones add to the distinctive front façade of this new build. Outdoor lighting adds a dramatic flair to the front porch.

Just outside the main kitchen of this home, this cozy seating area features an outdoor fire pit and water feature.

Snow guards on the roof not only provide function; they are a historical detail that brings charm and tradition to this home.

Spectacular views seen from much of this new home include a neighboring golf course brimming with lush grass and mature trees.
