Finish & Feature Spotlight — Maximize your outdoor space with a versatile shed

shed 1-01

Plan for storage and more with a backyard shed!

Sheds make it easy to cut clutter and streamline storage. They’re the perfect catch-all for tools, equipment, and gardening supplies, but that’s not all! Read on to discover how this versatile addition can help you make the most of the outdoor space at your new Boise area home.

shed 2-01

  • With a little interior trim work, you can use your shed to create a miniature studio, man cave, or clubhouse for the kids.
  • Position a shed to your advantage! Make it a focal point for your garden, or use it to block an unfavorable view.
  • Use a shed to help your garden grow! A shed can create a warm area — called a micro-climate — by reflecting sunlight and retaining heat in its foundation. Plant your garden nearby, and your plants will benefit from the extended growing time.

Let your family’s favorites guide you

As you begin to plan an outdoor retreat for your new Boise area home, take time to consider how you and your family like to live outdoors. Do you enjoy inviting company for cook-outs?  Love having fresh herbs at the ready? Long for a peaceful oasis where you can relax? There are backyard options to suit every family’s taste! Here are a few ideas:

backyard 6-01

  • Consider yourself a grill master? You can create an “outdoor kitchen” with a grill set-up that offers some extra working surface. Add a durable outdoor table and chairs along with some outdoor lighting, and you’ve got a convenient, comfortable place to enjoy your next cook-out.
  • If you like entertaining outdoors, consider a fire pit! They’re great for adding atmosphere and warmth to your backyard retreat, and they’re perfect for roasting marshmallows.
  • Got a green thumb? Consider planter boxes to surround your patio with fresh herbs, vegetables, flowers and foliage.
  • A trellis or curtains can provide the enclosure you need for a private escape. Add some cozy lounge chairs and some patio speakers for mood music, and you’ll be ready to relax!

Finish and Feature Spotlight — Your Backyard Retreat

Backyard options make it easy to create
an outdoor space your whole family will love!

backyard 1-01

Just in time for summer, today we begin a new Finish & Feature Spotlight series on outdoor living! If you’re making plans for a brand new Boise area home, it can be tempting to focus on central areas like the kitchen or family room in favor of less prominent ones like the backyard.  But with a little upfront planning, you can maximize your outdoor living space to create a fun and relaxing haven the whole family will love!  Stick with us over the next few days as we take a look at some of the great backyard options you can consider.

Plan for a space that draws you outdoors

Your patio can be so much more than just a slab of concrete baking in the sun! Make yours a welcoming extension of your home with some of these ideas:

  • Consider an arbor or pergola to provide cooling shade and protect you from the elements. Adding shade around your home helps you save on energy costs, and lets you create a comfortable outdoor “room” you can enjoy, season after season.
  • Think about concrete with color and texture! Today’s tinted, stamped concrete does a great job of mimicking natural stone, and creates a beautiful, long-lasting surface for your patio.
  • Paver stones are another way to add interest! Use them to extend your patio, or create a convenient walkway.
