OUTDOOR RETREAT

“Creating an outdoor environment not only provides countless hours of enjoyment, but also adds value and allure to your home.” ~ Pete B.

 

The exterior of your home is the first impression people see upon entering your property, and a place to extend your living space for gathering and entertaining across the seasons. Woodsmith Construction has made a name for itself specializing in outdoor projects and essentially reinventing your backyard. Owner Pete Buechle has a keen eye for seeing what is possible outside the footprint of the home. His creative input, knowledge, and experience offer homeowners just the right recipe for creating their beautiful outdoor environment to enjoy for years to come.

 

At this home, the client wanted the ultimate outdoor retreat. With a large family, and frequent entertaining, the goal was to “bring the inside out”, creating usable space with additional “rooms” under cover. We started with a fully enclosed sunroom addition with vaulted ceilings and plenty of natural light streaming in. Building out the back, we added roof coverings over the kitchen areas, along with several stone accent walls. A transitional design, there are modern elements combined with rustic materials. The outdoor kitchen features a built-in stainless grill, sink, refrigerator, wrap-around leather finished granite top, seating for five at the bar, and even a custom made bread oven. There are also two firepits with culling stone and glass that changes colors with the flames. Topping it all off is the outdoor lighting, enhancing everything for a summer’s evening gathering.

 

When challenges happen, we rise to the occasion. Even with plans solidly in place, changes can happen during production. In this case, architectural designs were modified midway through the job. We took care of all of the permitting changes that were needed as a result so that the paperwork was in order and the job could continue to run smoothly.
