Backyard Transformation: Stylish Outdoor Dining

Time and time again, we hear from our clients that the #1 attraction to their back yard is for barbequing and enjoying their meals. An outdoor dining area is a great way to maximize the amount of socializing space in their homes. As an extension of the house, it’s perfect for entertaining and relaxing with friends and family during the warmer months of the year. Thus, we pay special attention to transform backyards or patios into a welcoming food preparation and dining spaces that are as beautiful as they are functional. Below you will find some amazing outdoor dining spaces made by Paul Lafrance and his team:

Outdoor Dining Project #1

Thirty years ago, the homeowners’ previous deck was strong and well-built, but time takes its toll and it needed to be replaced. We replaced it with a brand spanking new composite and cedar haven, perfect for a peaceful retirement.

Outdoor Dining Project #2

Starting from a damaged yard with the removal of an old deck and above ground pool half finished, we created a very special deck, used for the homeowners’ marriage celebration!
