When a ray of sunshine cuts through gray, winter clouds, we all tend to dream of spending more time outdoors. While you patiently wait for warmer temperatures to arrive, it’s time to take action.

What is an Outdoor Living Space, and Why Do You Need One?

An outdoor living area can include a deck, porch, patio, outdoor kitchen, dining area and much more! Making better use of your backyard gives you more room to entertain, relax, host cookouts or even work from home. (It even increases the value of your home!) But before any building or designing can happen, you have to decide how you want to use your outdoor living space.


Do you want to:

  • Entertain guests? 
  • Cook meals outdoors? 
  • Play games and sports?
  • Relax poolside? 
  • Meditate? 
  • Exercise? 

Your outdoor space should be a reflection of you and what you enjoy doing. After all; it is an extension of your home. If you’re unsure of what’s possible to do in your backyard; contact us for a free building consultation!

  • Relaxation Oasis

If you enjoy basking in the sun and feeling the breeze on your skin, an outdoor living area built for relaxation is perfect. Sit on your large, covered patio and read a good book. Add comfortable furniture, a hot tub, a hammock and lounges.  Take it to the next level with a soothing fire-pit or bubbling water feature. 

  • Outdoor Kitchen and Dining Area

If you’re a casual meal prepper or enjoy preparing gourmet meals for friends and family; an outdoor kitchen makes for a great addition to your backyard. We build complete outdoor kitchens with plumbing, gas and electric so you can prepare meals with ease, while your guests chat nearby. 

  • Outdoor Entertainment Area for Family and Guests

Eliminate cramped indoor spaces by taking the party outside. Add some plush furniture and tables to your patio for easy dining and conversation. Consider adding an outdoor fireplace surrounded in stone, a water feature or up-lighting to create the right vibe for your guests. 

  • Create More Room for Activities with a Detached Living Area

Your outdoor living area doesn’t have to be directly next to or behind your home. If you’re looking for extra room for exercise, a pool house, a man cave, crafting room or game room; a detached living space gives you just that. Detached living spaces by Modern Structure are fully equipped with plumbing and electric; so the party never has to end. 

  • Outdoor Space Suitable for Exercise and Recreation

Make the most of a large backyard with a pool, basketball court, pickle-ball court and more! No matter your needs and interests, we design custom outdoor living spaces to suit.
