Everything you need to create a relaxing Outdoor Room

May 20, 2022

We moved into our house almost 3 years ago, and we have been refining our big plans for our backyard, patio and lake front areas ever since including this outdoor room design project!

I’m excited to bring you along for the whole process.

I’ll be documenting the progress with videos, photos, and DIY guides along the way so be sure to follow along.

Here’s a list of what we hope to tackle in the next few months:

  • Build a gazebo on our patio (which will eventually get moved to our lake front area).
  • Build a composite deck over our existing concrete patio, and extending the area.
  • Build a sectional seating area
  • Build an outdoor kitchen for grilling
  • Have our lake wall built and include a fire pit and lakeside seating area

First up is the Patio

Here is a Design Board is have created to select items for this new relaxing outdoor space. Everything is linked below.
