Locals would agree that the lanai is where we spend most of our time. Whether you enjoy a good book, entertaining friends and family or simply admiring the view you’re probably doing it out back. As a builder we recognize both the functionality and design elements necessary when creating the ultimate outdoor space. Here’s a few outdoor fire features we can’t get enough of right now.
We’re changing up the old standby fireplace by enlarging the opening and using different materials to create a more authentic look. As you can imagine a fireplace in Florida doesn’t get much use year round, but it makes for a fun accent wall for your guests to enjoy.
Fire and water bowls are the hottest way to light up your lanai! From hammered copper to sleek cement bowls there are a number of colors and finishes to pick from. One thing is certain, the right fire features can transform an average lanai into the ultimate entertaining space.
Gas lanterns are back in a big way! After seeing these handcrafted fixtures at the Builder Show in Orlando we couldn’t wait to use them in our next project. The amazing thing about these handmade lanterns is that you can incorporate them into any space such as a front entry, rear lanai, or even in your kitchen the options are endless. If you’re looking to add authentic charm to your home, this is it.
