Life on LBI doesn’t stop just because summer is over. While the summer breeze and sunshine are nice, the fall foliage and sweater weather can still be enjoyed from the comforts of your LBI new construction. At Stonehenge Building & Development, we’ve incorporated some extended season enhancements over our two decades as an LBI custom builder that help. The devil is in the details and with these LBI custom home must haves, our homeowners enjoy life on LBI well into the fall.
Outdoor kitchens extend entertainment space
Outdoor kitchens have quickly become a staple trend for homes, new and updated. An outdoor kitchen is a great way for hosts to engage with their guests while preparing meals and snacks. As simple as a grill or as sophisticated as a full outdoor kitchen complete with pizza oven, grill, mini fridge for your favorite beverages, and seating area, outdoor kitchens not only extend your entertainment space for an indoor-outdoor experience, but also keep gatherings together.
Outdoor living rooms and screened porches prolong the season
Going hand in hand with outdoor kitchens, outdoor living rooms and screened porches are popular additions to a custom home design. Bringing the comforts of indoor spaces to the great outdoors, these living spaces go beyond the typical terrace or deck. With the ability to incorporate your fire pit or fireplace to create a warm, cozy relaxing oasis, there are few limitations to outdoor living spaces.
Fire pits and fireplaces keep you warm on crisp fall nights
Fire pits have come a long way, they aren’t just a dirt hole in the ground with some sticks and wood. Today you can find bar height gas fire pits to place your drinks on, stone and concrete fire pits built right into your patio, and coffee table fire pits with fire glass. A fire pit may be better for entertaining because more people can sit around it. A custom outdoor fireplace offers an intimate setting for just a few people. It encourages intimate conversation and a romantic ambience. On cooler summer nights and even during the fall a fireplace or pit can be just what your LBI custom home needs!
