Outdoor Living

People come from around the world to enjoy Southwest Florida's climate and way of life. For those lucky few who build homes in the area, you want to take advantage of the weather and give the sense that you’re bringing the outdoors into your home. Outdoor living spaces are taking on a whole new feel. Here are some of the latest trends in outdoor living. Over the years, we have seen a trend in clients opting for marble decks instead of brick or travertine. Although both travertine and marble are beautiful stones, marble has less voids, which adds a modern touch to your outdoor living space. An added feature of using marble as opposed to travertine is that marble can be installed on a mud bed with the joints grouted. This application allows the deck material to have a similar appearance to the inside of your home, creating a modern flow to the entire space. Nothing is more pleasing than the sound of trickling water with the addition of a comforting fireplace to keep you warm on colder nights. Adding a unique fire and water feature enhances the outdoor living experience, which is essential when you're spending time entertaining on your lanai. Our premium pool finishes create a unique, natural look to your pool. Glass bead finishes will add a spectacular glow at night and dark finishes mimic a natural pond look. Speaking of entertaining, you’ll also want enhanced outdoor kitchens, which offer commercial grade grills, refrigerators, ice makers and additional storage. Wood ceilings can add a rich touch, making the outdoor feel as special as the interior of your home. Many homes in Southwest Florida are built with spectacular views of a preserve, golf course or lake. Why block the view with an aluminum enclosure? By having 'view windows' you can replace the vertical supports with a horizontal beam. To get the most cost-effective enjoyment from your new enclosure, be sure to ask about stainless steel fasteners. These will prevent you from having rusty screws that detract from your new screen enclosure. Also, ask your builder about super screen, which is stronger than conventional screening. Let us know if you’d like to add any of these features and trends to your home! Call us today for a free consultation, (239) 466-1801.

During the summer, when most of his friends were spending time at the beach and working on their tans, Tony was working alongside his dad learning the ins and outs of building. “We would always talk about building and development at the kitchen table,” stated Tony. “From the beginning, my father had very specific principles that he instilled in me.” These principles still guide Green Mountain Builders today. They include: Quality speaks for itself. There are no short cuts. Continue to learn everything you can and work hard.
