Adding living space inside a home is expensive, and often not practical. This presentation is a look at building an outdoor room that expands the living area of a home, but does it by creating the space entirely outdoors. To achieve a great result in a project like this, detailed planning is essential. Building hardscapes (floors, walls, ceilings), softscapes, fireplaces, water features, speakers and lighting in a coordinated project can give amazing results without breaking the bank. Positively impacting all five human senses, can help create a “vacation” feel to a new backyard space. With so many things to think about, Karsten provides a road map that anyone can easily navigate to achieve a stunning outdoor space that will be the envy of your guests invited to enjoy it. Spending time in your new outdoor room, with family, friends or even alone with a good book, will become a favorite pastime.
