No. 1: Outdoor Furniture & Outdoor Fabrics
Performance fabrics have come a long way in the last few years, which means there are SO many beautiful options for durable, washable, outdoor-friendly fabrics! Here’s a few of our favorites from projects across The Woodlands and Lake Travis.
No. 2: Outdoor Kitchen
Especially in Houston, maximizing your outdoor space is a great way to enjoy our year-round warm weather. And what better way to maximize than with a summer kitchen! From barbecue to grills to pizza ovens, these outdoor kitchens are at the heart of many memories for these Houston families.
No. 3: Outdoor Pergola
Pergolas, casitas, and summer kitchens are a great way to extend your living spaces, while also getting out and enjoying the sunshine. At our River Oaks project, the pergola is the perfect place to hang patio string lights. At our Meadowbrook Homestead project, the casita was custom built to create more livable space, no matter the season or weather. And, the roof of the casita attaches to the main house, making the exterior feel seamlessly connected to the interiors.

From functional outdoor fireplaces to built-in and gas-lit, exterior patio fireplaces are great to make those backyard patios enjoyable through all seasons. From The Woodlands to Lake Travis, here’s a few of our favorite fireplaces.
