The Project Goal or Objective:

The client’s expansive backyard was the perfect space to enjoy the outdoors; unfortunately, they only had an ugly concrete patio to entertain on. They were looking for a large porch with a fireplace so they could enjoy and entertain all year-round.


We designed a screened-in porch with an additional small deck, covered with flagstone, for grilling. A seat high wall was also built to separate the patio from the driveway and provide a nicer area to entertain. In addition, skylights continuously allow for light to flood into the kitchen and the owner had retrofitted storm windows to allow for year round comfort.


  • Stainless Steel Fireplace
  • Pine tongue & groove flooring
  • Beadboard Ceiling
  • Velux skylights
  • Composite decking with aluminum balusters
  • French Sliding glass door to kitchen
  • Lower level vented sidelight door unit
  • Louvered skirt around bottom of porch


This new porch and grilling deck takes the old, ugly, and outdated concrete patio to a new level and gives the client the ability to comfortably entertain guests all year-round. The client can now use their expansive backyard to its full potential.
