What is Your Outdoor Living Space Missing?

Outdoor SpacesThe best thing about Illinois and Wisconsin is being able to make the most of your new home’s outdoor living spaces. Depending on the type of outdoor space you have, you may actually be able to use it all year long, and in any weather. Extending the indoors to your outdoor living spaces has become even more important for home buyers, and we’re excited any time a buyer wants to customize their outdoor space.

One of the most popular options that our buyers look for is the outdoor living room, which can vary widely depending on how you want to use it. We can create a covered porch space with features for dining and relaxing. For additional privacy or to keep out pesky bugs, many buyers opt to create a screened porch that can be enjoyed at any time. These screened porches provide additional cover from the elements, and can still include dining and relaxation options.

Outdoor living spaces can also extend beyond the home into the backyard. Firepits are a great feature to add away from the home to create a unique hangout or relaxation spot. With a custom-built home, you can add a gas line out to the fire pit, or create a more rustic option that requires real wood. The ultimate option for outdoor living for many, especially those with children, is the swimming pool. Swimming pools provide countless hours of fun for the young and young-at-heart, and they’re a great place for lounging or even exercising.

If you’re looking to add space to your home that can be heated and cooled all year, a four season room may be the ideal solution. Because of its thermally-engineered frame and insulated roof, the temperatures of these rooms are easily controlled. The special weather-stripping gives you triple protection against drafts and interlocking sashes on the windows and doors help seal out the elements.

If you have a deck, patio, or a large backyard, you know the relaxation that comes with spending the afternoons outside enjoying the beautiful area. At Gerstad Builders, we offer customized options for all buyers that include features such as privacy, convenience, comfort and of course, a beautiful view!
