Outdoor Living Spaces
Written by Lauren Aaberg I 6/23/2020
The weather in Central Illinois can be unpredictable, but there are still those warm, perfectly sunny days that you just want to spend outside. Relaxing in the sun with a book, grilling, sitting around the firepit, and enjoying the shade on a covered deck are just a few outdoor activities that people seem to enjoy.
A relaxing seating area on your backyard patio, makes for a great space to entertain, nap in the sun, or simply relax. Having a storage bench nearby is great for storing patio furniture cushions and pillows throughout those rainy days and those not so warm months.
One of the best things about the nice and sunny days in Central Illinois is being able to grill a delicious meal to share with your friends and family. This outdoor grilling area we built in rural Champaign has all the tools you need when it comes to grilling! Plenty of counter space for food prep, a gas line ran to the patio for the gas grill (No propane tanks needed!) and how cool is that custom opening for the Big Green Egg Grill!?
Relaxing around a firepit is the perfect way to unwind after a long day. It also makes for a great place to entertain family and friends, roast marshmallows, and socialize. This in ground firepit that was built in the backyard of one of our custom homes in Mahomet is the perfect place to spend those summer nights!
Having a covered deck makes for a lovely outdoor space, while still having shelter from the elements. This covered deck in the Thornewood subdivision in Mahomet looks like an amazing place to relax with your morning coffee, especially with that view!
Though Illinois may not have perfect weather year-round, having an outdoor space to enjoy on those nice days is still a luxury!
