There is more to creating the perfect outdoor living area than just furniture. We, as your custom home builder Banner Elk North Carolina, lay the foundation for the experience when we build out these spaces. We take into consideration where the sun will rise and set and where the wind typically blows (and how hard). We listen to what you plan on using the space for now and what you may decide to use the area for in the future. Not completely sure how you will utilize these outdoor living spaces? That is ok. We can plan ahead so you, and your spaces, are primed and ready to grow as your dreams and ideas do. 

When building custom outdoor living spaces, some of the previously considered practical elements are now integral in the design. A railing’s primary purpose is to enclose and create a safe space. Now it can also offer more than just security and well-being. Does your aesthetic lean towards glass, cables, metal bars, wood, hog wire, twigs, stone, or another custom decorative element? Do you want your railings to be evident and visible or just disappear into the expansive views and peaceful landscape you’re enjoying? Let us help out as a trusted custom home builder Banner Elk North Carolina knows and trusts. 

When it comes to decking, this is something that can sometimes be passed right over without much attention. It is so important though and we want to help understand your feelings about it and implement the best option. We know that budget can play a part in all decisions, but we want to make sure you also understand maintenance and upkeep as well. Pressure treated decking can work in some instances, where others might weather better with composite or even thermory boards or Ipe. No matter which material we use, we will ensure it is the correct option for your outdoor living space. 

One of the most compelling aspects of planning your outdoor living space is to know that as the temperatures start to drop you don’t have to hurry inside anymore. We can work heating elements into your design. Exterior fireplaces and fire pits can be a practical and aesthetically pleasing solution. They can be wood burning or utilize gas logs. We prefer to pipe all of our fireplaces for gas – even if it is going to be wood burning. This way, you can easily add a gas lighter in or convert to gas logs down the line. Either way, they make for a beautiful focal point and offer physical and visual warmth. Another option is to utilize overhead patio heaters. They radiate heat creating a warm and enjoyable atmosphere. Depending on your known or anticipated uses for the space, we can help direct you towards the right options for your outdoor living space. 

There is so much more to consult about than what we have listed above. Can you picture yourselves enjoying this new outdoor living area?
