Granville home's living space moves outdoors

This outdoor fireplace is unique in the way that the logs do not get stacked, they actually get placed in vertically to maximize the heat given off.

This fire pit ring is removed by just the right amount of distance and provides a separate place for young adults to gather.

These outdoor chairs are situated in such a way that they can be used by one person who is simply enjoying the day or for a small social gathering.

This wall of exterior French doors leading off of the house is the only enclosed side of a covered outdoor space.

As an outdoor patio with only a roof and no walls, there shouldn’t be much need for outdoor lighting, but this patio comes equipped with skylights to make it even brighter.

This patio has several different seating options, everything from covered, cushioned wicker furniture to Adirondack chairs.

Patio tables come in many shapes and sizes, but this one embraces two concepts, that of a casual picnic table and a more elegant patio set, and meshes the two together.

Most backyard patio ideas focus solely on an outdoor or covered patio, but this design allows the covered patio to flow freely to the outdoor patio so the homeowners can enjoy the outdoors no matter what the weather is.

An Adirondack chair is perfect for just kicking back and relaxing or sitting around a fire pit at night.

Plush outdoor furniture cushions give the comforts of the indoors while enjoying the outdoors.

This uncovered patio area has outdoor patio furniture of varying sizes that are perfect for large dining groups or intimate gatherings.
