Life moves quickly. Schedules are busy. In days past, the yearly vacation gave families all the time they needed to unwind. Not so anymore. These days, more and more families want vacation-quality relaxation without the travel. The “staycation” is here to stay. The best way to enjoy it? Turn a boring backyard into an outdoor retreat.
“If you’ve got the budget and space, an outdoor oasis can include a pool, fireplace, seating area, and an outdoor kitchen – complete with a grill, refrigerator, bar, keggerator, sink, warming drawers and storage,” says Everything Barbeque owner Scott Grisgsby. “But even smaller homes have room for outdoor islands with grills and food prep areas.”
A well-done outdoor oasis doesn’t just make a house a vacation spot. It also increases resale value. “More and more of my clients have outdoor living on their list of priorities when looking for a house,” says Nancy Kimberling, a Real Estate Professional with Prudential Alliance. “Outdoor living spaces are hot, hot, hot.”
The secret to building a great outdoor retreat is planning. Space planning and designing is where the costliest mistakes start. Everything Barbeque specializes in turnkey design and building of outdoor living spaces and brings professional designers to the table – making the process painless and enjoyable.
“For an individual, finding and managing experienced, licensed and bonded contractors in so many areas – plumbing, electricity, framing, cement and masonry – is a fulltime job and can double total construction time,” says Grigsby. “With Everything Barbeque, ‘turnkey’ also means ‘total accountability.’”
