Outdoor kitchens have increased dramatically in popularity in recent years. These facilities can be as simple as a space for a barbecue or elaborate enough to support large professionally catered events. The selection of appliances, overall layout, and material selections are almost infinite in scope and “flavor.” If you are dreaming of a kitchen that totally mimics your indoor setup, contact a licensed architect and builder so that the proper permits are filed and the correct appliances are chosen.
Pool Houses and Outdoor Rooms
Love having family and friends over for a pool party—but hate walking back and forth to the main house to gather supplies, make snacks, wash dishes, and other party tasks? Pool houses and Ramadas are the answer. From the traditional cabana that is large enough to handle a guest changing from street clothes to play apparel to large houses that double as guest quarters, complete with bathrooms, kitchens, playrooms, and bedrooms—plus running water, electricity, and climate control—pool houses are a must-have for homeowners who entertain often.
Arizona Room or Sun Room
An Arizona room is a semi-outdoor recreational room found frequently in homes in Arizona. The room is typically a patio that has been covered and screened-in, creating an outdoor feeling while preventing excessive heat and keeping insects and animals out. The room generally borders the backyard of the house and is often accessed directly from the living room, kitchen or other common room of the home. You can convert your existing patio, with roof or without, into a beautiful sunroom enclosure. Many people refer to a Patio Enclosure with a lot of windows as an “Arizona Room”. Arizona Room and/or Sunroom addition can be any living space that is not used a a bedroom or as a kitchen. Most of the patio enclosures and Sunroom additions, in Arizona are being used a recreational space or as an extension to the family room or the living room. Adding a room to your home will increase the value of the home and at the same time will add to your family quality of life. It is important to check all of the zoning and building codes in your area regarding adding additional living space. Additionally it is important to check with your Home Owners Association (HOA) to get their approval for your addition project.
