New Outdoor Living Space Addition In Gaithersburg

A Lovely, Nantucket-Style Backyard Retreat

A few years ago, a Meridian Homes’ client had a huge tree crash through the back of their home during a storm. Our client called and we went to help. We repaired the family room ceiling, which had a big hole in it. And, out of this misfortune came an opportunity for our client to have the kitchen of their dreams. We completely remodeled the kitchen and created a larger space by bumping out the existing walls. At the same time, we installed an oversized sliding door that led from the kitchen to a new free-form flagstone patio.

Our client discovered that the hot, buggy summer weather limited the time that they were using their patio. So, three years later, we were asked to create an indoor/outdoor living space addition that the family would be able to use in spring, summer and fall. Our suggestion was to build an expansive Nantucket-style screened-in porch that included the existing flagstone floor and retaining walls. The design included a tongue and groove ceiling and exposed rafters, all in white. Paddle fans were installed to deliver a cool breeze and low voltage fixtures were installed to provide the perfect lighting. A wall-mounted television will allow the family to watch football comfortably in the cool fall weather on their new screened-in porch. Of course, the most important feature is the doggie door that allows the family dog to go outside independently.

Are you looking to create the perfect outdoor living space for your family? Click here to contact us. We’ll get back to you quickly so that we can answer all of your questions about the design-build process.
