Homebuyers not only value outdoor living space, they have come to expect it. These outdoor environments run the gamut from modest to lavish.
It used to be that unless they were building luxury homes, production home builders typically didn’t do much with the outdoor space. There might be a patio here and a deck there and some landscaping in the front yard. Now, even in moderately priced homes, builders are integrating formerly underutilized outdoor space into the rest of the floor plan.
Budgets and dreams: a delicate balance
Every problem has a solution
