20 Gazebos in Outdoor Living Spaces

Outdoor living spaces . . . We use the expression so easily these days.  In fact, it won’t be long until a new “buzz word” for using your outdoors – catches on.  But ‘using’ your outdoor space is what it is all about.  Long gone are the days that landscapes were viewed by the homeowner from inside windows. Yards are livable spaces. Like extra rooms in your home, but out the back door. That is why gazebos make sense. Gazebos allow you to use your outdoor space almost year round. Of course, weather can be a factor; however, a gazebo with a fireplace will keep you warm and toasty while giving you some breathing room from inside routines.  Enjoy the next eight properties as they show off the beauty of Gazebos with focal point fireplaces. Picture yourself relaxing in these peaceful settings with loved ones, neighbors, friends, and of course, family pets. Want to see the entire property? Join us in our gallery of works and explore.

We happen to know these first homeowners and the family dog use their outdoor living space every day.  Hey, that might be the new “buzz” word – Everyday Living Spaces!
