Dad Deserves All the Best in a Custom Home on LBI

With Father’s Day creeping up on us this weekend, we wanted to give a nod to all the hardworking Dads & father figures. There’s no better way to celebrate these important people in our lives than to highlight how much dad deserves all the best in a custom home on LBI! You might ask, what types of features are included in “all the best”? Here’s our list of favorite features that Dad might love in a new custom home!

Custom Outdoor Kitchens

Does Dad like to cook and BBQ like a pro? Then, we’ve got you covered! A custom outdoor kitchen with a grill is a sure way to get his juices flowing. Many of the outdoor kitchens we design or our custom homebuilding clients on LBI include features like grills, outdoor sinks, stovetop burners, and under cabinet refrigerators/wine chillers. But another great feature to include is an outdoor pizza oven! Whether it’s a larger, paver style brick oven, or a style that is incorporated into the outdoor kitchen, an outdoor pizza oven is a great addition to Dad’s outdoor cooking & grilling experience.

It’s a Perfect Night for a Firepit

Fire pits have come a long way in the past few years. Today you can build a bar height gas fire pit to place your drinks on. You can also build a stone and concrete fire pit built right into your patio. Some fire pits are coffee table height with fire glass.  A fire pit is a great option for entertaining because more people can sit around it than a patio table.  With some comfy lounge chairs, or bar stools Dad’s outdoor entertaining just kicked up a notch. A fire pit can encourage intimate conversation or can add a romantic ambiance.  And the kids (or adults) will love making smores, too!

Relax & Refresh Poolside

Once Dad is done enjoying a great meal with family and friends cooked in his custom outdoor kitchen, cooling off in a refreshing pool is just what he needs! We love using Gunite for the inground pools and spas we build for our custom homes on Long Beach Island. On LBI where the lots can be tight, Gunite is a great solution because the pool can be any size or any shape. When size is not an issue, many homeowners choose a fiberglass pool which is molded in a factory and come in specific shapes & sizes. There are a variety of options for finishes and features for both types of pools, including waterfalls, shapes, stairs, and many other options, materials and finishes to coordinate with the rest of your outdoor living area. Depending on our homeowner’s imagination and budget, we can customize their pool to their specific tastes. Having a backyard pool is beautiful, private, and great for tons of family fun when the beach is not on the agenda.

 Man-Cave Dreams

You might be thinking that Dad deserves a little more space of his own. We would love to mention that Dads love a “Man-Cave”! This is a place where they can enjoy sports viewing on a large screen TV, entertain friends with home theater and state-of-the-art sound systems, or enjoy some game-time themselves, think billiards or foosball tables, or even online gaming. There are so many possibilities for Dad’s man-cave, so, when you are designing your new custom home on LBI, be sure to plan for that man-cave.

Father’s Day means family. And family time means a lot to everyone, which is why it is important to give Dad some space and account for great features & options for him in a new custom home. Stonehenge has been designing and building some of the best custom homes on Long Beach Island for families just like yours, for over three decades. We would like to wish everyone a Happy Father’s Day! If you are looking to start your new custom home on LBI, be sure to start here by contacting us today!
