How to Choose the Right Outdoor Entertaining Space in Northern VA

May 12, 2020

Have you been considering adding more outdoor space to your backyard oasis? When you want to spend time in the great outdoors with all the comforts of home readily available, consider a new custom covered porch or sunroom for your Northern Virginia home! 

1. Open Porch with Grilling Station
Our clients love how the cedar ceiling and exposed beams add rustic charm to this gorgeous open porch with a masonry fireplace, flat screen TV, and built in speaker system. The ceiling fan cools them off and keeps the bugs away, and the grilling deck right next door makes it easy and fun to cookout with friends and family.


2. Screened-In Porch with Grilling Station
The combination screened porch and grilling station scream entertaining! This featured project has the ability to host a large number of family members and friends, but also enough privacy for individual relaxation. The custom composite decking makes this porch and deck a winning combination for many years to come. 

3. Fully Screened-In Porch

If you’re tired of baking in the sun, sweeping off the leaves, or running in from the rain on your current deck or patio, this should be on your wish list! It’s like an outdoor Family Room! 





4. Sunroom
The uses for this type of room are virtually endless, as you can enjoy the great outdoors without the pollen or the bugs. You can use it to showcase your indoor foliage, use it as a living room or reading room, or turn it into your home office!

This style of covered porch is a great way to add additional outdoor living space when you are adding an addition to your home. It allows for the ability to match the design and materials of your existing house for a smooth transition between new and current parts of your home.
