Grand Award for Outdoor Living Area (Design-Build)
This Severna Park homeowner was looking to remove the property’s old, worn-out decks and create an outdoor living space to enjoy spring, summer, and fall. The addition of an expanded upper deck off the master suite allowed for covered living space below and automatic screens was installed between the deck columns to ensure a space for insect-free relaxation. On the patio outside the covered room, a massive stone fireplace beckons. The structure encompasses niches for storing wood and extends to the right of the fireplace to create an outdoor kitchen. Because of the proximity, the owners can easily entertain guests while preparing food close by. Sitting walls along the perimeter of the patio eliminate the need for additional seating for large groups of guests and help frame out space.
- Automatic screens are superbly crafted.
- Fireplace, kitchen and sitting walls are made with Lake George stacked stone.
- The patio surface is bluestone.
- More than 50 lighting features bring this property to life at night.
