The glass doors separating the great room from the porch fold back to create an enormous space for entertaining. The identical roof timbers match well with the top structure of  the glass doors.

A front porch welcomes owners and guests and adds striking detail to the exterior of this timber frame home. It’s also a great place to sit and read or just relax.

The unbelievable view takes center stage from a covered porch leading into a screened porch and on to the front door.

A small porch off the great room extends the living space during the warmer months. The horizontal railing does not obstruct the view.

The owners have a panoramic view of their property from this screened porch. Plenty of sun comes through the glass roof, which makes the space usable on rainy days.

Adding a fireplace to an outdoor deck extends the time when it can be enjoyed. It will be welcome even on a chilly summer evening.

Aspens surround this lovely deck and even grow up through it, giving the deck a completely natural appearance. Water rushes through the aqueduct, adding to the ambience.

Two firepits and a hot tub make this deck an ideal place to entertain in all seasons. Large umbrellas serve to shield the sun and rain.

Glass inserts in the railing give those who are seated a clear view of the sparkling lake. Multiple seating areas are suitable for small and large groups for dining or basking in the sun.

A cozy porch provides an intimate space for conversation. Just a step down, the fire pit is surrounded by more seating.

The designers of this deck transformed what might have been dead space near the stairs with a charming bench seat. The cable railing system nearly disappears from view.

A relatively simple front porch has plenty of space for dining al fresco or simply enjoying the day in a couple of Adirondack chairs.
