Break ground on an outdoor living space: Moroccan Monday

A moroccan renovation added square feet to this clients outdoor living area

Are you are considering a renovation or remodel of your outdoor living space this Spring? About a year ago one of our clients had just finished up design and was getting ready to break ground on a total remodel to their outdoor living area. A few questions to keep in mind are:

Consider your desired total square feet (both covered and uncovered)
  1. How many square feet are you looking to add?
    Have a good idea of what your end goal is important, and don’t let the fact that we live in the Pacific Northwest hold you back either. From canopy’s to NanaWalls – there are plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors and stay dry.

    Will there be a fire pit or a fireplace?
  2.  Does your dream outdoor space have a fire pit, a fireplace, or none of the above?
    Take some time to do some homework and decide if you would like a fire pit or a fireplace. You could have both, although you would need more square footage

    To pillar or not to pillar


  3. Are you looking to create a more drama in your outdoor living area?
    Pillars and half walls are a great way to divide your space and keep it open and airy. Plus it adds some major drama and elegance *BONUS*

    What's under your feet?
  4. What is the ground made of?
    Whether your preference is tile, concrete or limestone there are perks and drawbacks to them all.  Doing a little bit of research here would be beneficial and fun!

Regardless of what your dreams are for your outdoor living space, give GHA a call and we can help you figure out how to bring those dreams to life!
