Outdoor Grill and Dining

Outdoor Grill and Dining

As we head into spring and summer, I start thinking about my porch and other outdoor spaces around my home.  I have an appointment to get the wicker furniture repaired for the porch, I’ve ordered new umbrellas for the patio, and I have been doing my best to put grass seed on the spots in the yard that the dogs have dug up.  All this, so that when it is warm enough to relax, play, and eat outside, we will be ready.

We help our clients with all manner of outdoor spaces from porches to pergolas, patios to pavilions, and those gathering places enhance the enjoyment of every home.  I have found that if you create a comfortable space, either indoors or outdoors, people will find a way to have fun there.  I can’t wait to spend a balmy afternoon relaxing on my porch.

    I am always happy to wake up to a Jimmy Crisp “On the Drawing Board” email in my inbox, and this installment with these spectacular outdoor designs and 2 new houses was extra-special. Thank you for sharing. And the thought of ice cream goes so well with those gorgeous porches and patios.
