Long summer days, great weather, delicious food and good friends. Now, that’s a fabulous recipe for BBQ fun. Many of our communities are located where summers are warm, so we design accordingly. As a home builder in Orlando, for instance, we understand that a built-in grill is a welcome addition to the lanai. The same goes for our communities elsewhere, like our new homes in Austin, TX, where many floor plans come with options for an outdoor kitchen on the back patio.
Patios with outdoor kitchens can be casual, with comfy and attractive furniture for lounging or eating al fresco.
Set the mood with ceiling fans and lighting for your outdoor kitchen, but be sure to use lighting specifically rated for damp and wet environments.
After the BBQ, everyone wants to sit back and relax. There are a lot of options for lounge furniture, depending on your personal style.
Upgrade from the old Styrofoam cooler and build your own mobile cart on wheels that moves easily on any floor surface, even the lawn.
If it’s just you and another couple doing a BBQ, create an intimate area for quiet conversation away from the grill.
