One of the best parts of every Brown Haven home is its unbelievable outdoor living spaces. We build in such picturesque regions, with beautiful views of the mountains and lakes. Our covered decks and porches give our homeowners the opportunity to enjoy the scenery… among other things! These unique features add more entertaining space, along with everyday living space.

1) Just add fire

Why settle for a campfire or fire pit when you can have built-in heat? Outdoor wood or gas fireplaces are a great way to extend your outdoor experience in the chilly spring/fall weather. We love the cozy ambiance they add to our already incredible porches.


2) Work alfresco

Post-covid, some people are still working remotely and want to change up the space where they spend their days. Who wouldn’t want an office with a lake view? All you need is a comfy chair, a table, and your laptop to make your screened porch into the office of your dreams!



3) Go for the comfy couch

Say goodbye to that old picnic table. It’s time to embrace outdoor furniture that is comfortable and stylish, with woven textures, bold colors, or curvy lines. Soft couches or settees, plush outdoor rugs, pillows, and blankets. Your outdoor living room will get just as much use as your indoor space!



4) Hi-tech meets the great outdoors

Homeowners are bringing the indoors outside. By integrating cutting-edge tech like outdoor TVs and open-air sound systems into their porches, they’re creating unique recreation spaces. Add a screen and projector, and a fully-loaded snack bar to enjoy your favorite films under the stars.



5) Try porch gardening

Imagine a carefree kitchen garden or an eye-catching floral tapestry on your back deck. Grow veggies & herbs with vertical gardening techniques that are easy to care for and harvest. Create colorful container gardens with unique pots and interesting combinations of annuals, perennials, and shrubs.



However you choose to dress up your outdoor space, it’s sure to be a highlight of your new Brown Haven home. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy the great outdoors than right in your own backyard. For more information, please contact us at 706-514-4447.
