Entertain and relax with a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor areas.
This suburban Burlington backyard houses an active young family who loves to entertain and relax with the little time they have at home between work and hockey practices. The backyard was small and lacked any attractive design features. Having a seamless flow between the various areas from inside to outside was a key condition for entertaining.
The design incorporates a composite lumber deck with a lower landing for hot tub access and a covered area directly off of the dining area. The lower patio area boasts a hot tub and custom steel and soapstone bar which we had fabricated. Lighting and planting finish the project and provide around the clock ambience.
Privacy was needed from neighboring yards and was achieved using a lightweight stone wall and cedar screens. No matter the weather, the family enjoys time together watching the game under the timber frame roof.
A grill island with soapstone counters and bar completes the family room area. The deck is finished with a frameless glass railing to allow a view of the ravine directly behind the property.
