How do you envision your backyard—as a carefree living space boldly integrating the indoors and out?
Consider this outdoor room. Rustic stone fireplace holding the promise of a relaxing evening in its dancing flames. Screened-in walls on two sides allowing outdoor sights and sounds to flow inside. 48-inch Viking gas grill with rotisserie just begging to be fired-up. Flat-panel plasma bringing the game to life in high-definition.
This outdoor room covers all the bases of functional design. Zero-maintenance teak wood flooring handles anything the weather can throw at it. Silestone countertops that are heat and stain resistant. Storage area for outdoor chair cushions. Insect-free entertaining courtesy of the screened-in walls. Seamless transition to bluestone terrace.

It’s that extra space that lets you connect to the outdoors, even when it’s too cold to be outside.
—Dan Tibma, Tibma Design/Build
