This North Vancouver family already had plans to revamp their outdoor space, and with the arrival of COVID-19 it could not have been a better move!

As a young active family who loves to entertain, this re-envisioned space not only improved the overall look and functionality but brought a lot of joy while keeping things safe.

Two warm and welcoming “wings” of covered outdoor living space expand out from the back of the home, while still leaving plenty of open grassy space for the kids to play.

One wing taking on the role of an outdoor fitness and hot tub pad, while the main wing serves as a comprehensive entertaining or family living space, complete with spacious outdoor living, dining and kitchen areas.

The deck was replaced with a low maintenance Trex composite deck and the main area was placed flush with the backyard landscape.

Environmentally conscious and naturally insect and rot-resistant, the warm, natural feel of the environment is additionally enhanced with its cedar soffit, post and beam details.
