Our Latest Outdoor Living Space Project
We are so excited and honored to have received the 2021 CotY Best of Show Award from our NARI Greater Phoenix Chapter for this Residential Addition! We took our client’s goals and added our design and craftsmanship to make a GREAT outdoor living space with an amazing deck and storage room two-story addition. The North Phoenix home faces north with a stunning view of Lookout Mountain Preserve and the northeast valley. Our client now has an incredible space to enjoy their scenic view.
We created a large outdoor living area for entertaining. This beautiful adobe style home’s first floor was built below grade level. The second story of the home is dedicated to the main living space with the kitchen, living room, and dining room. By expanding the deck, and integrating an outdoor kitchen, we created a much larger living space for their home.
We built a two-story addition to the back of the house which creates a storage room, of which the roof serves as an additional walk deck space for the new outdoor kitchen (check out the photos). This new uncovered deck directly extends from the existing deck so that it spans the width of the home. The storage room is a secure, temperature-controlled space. With a ceiling height of just over 9’0” and over 200 sq. ft., this room below the new deck addition is the perfect space for additional storage.
The existing deck cover was a weathered canvas awning that required a bulky wireframing/support system. We replaced it with a custom pergola with a solid roof that provides shade, protection, and more style to the deck and to the back of the house.
It’s in the Details
The deck has electrical for lighting and misting fans. In cooler temperatures, portable heaters will make this a comfortable living space during all 4 seasons. TV mounts were added along with cabinets, a sink base, storage shelves, and a built-in barbeque. Beautiful curtains were hung to help soften the lines of the pergola and added privacy when needed.
The interior of the storage space is sheeted with plywood and painted gray as the perfect backdrop to the wall storage solutions and racks that were installed for the work areas. The ceiling is painted black to maintain the desired focus of the homeowner.
New paint to the exterior of the house was done in a light beige and a complementary dark brown to allow the architectural details to stand out on the home.
Overall, this addition checks off all the clients’ must-haves. Meeting each goal: secure climate-controlled storage, outdoor kitchen, and 4-season entertaining space has truly added to the value of this home. Now, they wait, for the opportunity to share it with family and friends.
