Fall for Outdoor Living!

October is truly one of the most glorious months of the year. Heat and humidity have finally dissipated, replaced  by cool, crisp autumn air. It’s prime outdoor weather season, especially for enjoying your porch or patio to its fullest and taking in the beauty of the leaves turning orange, red and gold. The cool weather also signals a time to gather friends together and enjoy food, friendship and fall sports.  Here are three design innovations that will further enhance your enjoyment of fall outdoor living!

Lundberg Builders custom built this beautiful porch for clients who live on Kent Island, featuring a fireplace and outdoor kitchen.

Outdoor Fireplaces

The desire for more outdoor living options is driving innovations in outdoor fireplaces. Today, a homeowner can choose from single-sided, multi-sided or see-through;  contemporary, traditional and linear styles; gas or wood fuel types, and surrounds featuring stone, brick or concrete. Create a cozy living room feeling with an outdoor fireplace that provides warmth, glowing light and camping but better ambiance. The fireplace featured in the photo above is a Heat & Glo Courtyard Gas Fireplace.

The Courtyard has multiple configurations. It’s all about options for homeowners, and with 54 different combinations of accessories and two different sizes to choose from (36-inch or 42-inch widths), there is sure to be a fit for everyone. 

  • Multiple interior options: Stainless steel to magnify the flames, traditional brick for a classic look, or premium stacked or herringbone brick for a unique look in neutral tones.
  • Multiple looks: From logs to contemporary glass media and three different brick options or stainless steel, every home’s unique style can be captured.
