Are you taking advantage of your beautiful back yard? Having space and nice landscaping is so much better when you can enjoy it firsthand. There are a number of ways for you to change your home – a little or a lot – to make better use of your outdoor view. Foster Remodeling can help you design Fairfax, Arlington and Alexandria home additions to showcase your backyard from the inside, outside or both. Convert an existing space, like the garage, or add on to your frame to increase square footage.
A deck is one of the most popular Northern Virginia home additions. It’s a good focal point for barbecues, playing outdoor games, reading a book, enjoying the pool or catching a suntan. A lot of Northern Virginia homes have a sloped backyard. We can build a deck even with the first floor or second floor to maximize use of your yard.
Add on to your existing framework or convert your patio into a Florida room. Feature outdoor lighting and the backyard view with glass walls. The advantage to a Florida room, also called a sunroom, is that you can enjoy the outdoors without being outdoors. You will appreciate the shelter of the indoors if you are sensitive to the hot and humid summers or like to watch the snow fall without being out in it. A Florida room is a cozy place to spend a rainy afternoon curled up with a good book. It’s also a good spot for watching the game on a lazy weekend afternoon.
Porches and Gazebos
If you want to spend more time outside but you still want protection from the sun, wind and rain, consider a patio or gazebo. Our Foster Remodeling staff can help you design a screened in porch to maximize the fresh air and the view. Add on an outdoor entrance to your kitchen with a sliding door or bay doors. If you don’t have enough room to create an attached home addition, a gazebo is one option for an outdoor shelter. In the summertime, it’s a great place for the kids to go outside and play. It’s also a good place for adults to entertain or relax.
