Outdoor Living Space Project Nearing Completion

Two story deck renovation and storage room addition nearing completion

We are excited to show you our outdoor living space project that is nearing completion!  If you haven’t caught our other blogs about this North Phoenix home renovation, you can catch up by reading the first blog here and the second one here.  Outdoor living space in Phoenix is almost as important as indoor living space and we’ve enjoyed working on this amazing deck and storage room two-story addition. The back of the house faces north with a stunning view of Lookout Mountain Preserve and the northeast valley. It has been exciting to create a new space where our clients can enjoy their scenic view from their new deck and outdoor kitchen!

What our goals have been

The goal for our client was to have a larger outdoor space to do the entertaining he enjoys. This beautiful stucco adobe style home’s first floor was built below grade level. The second story of the home is dedicated to the main living space with the kitchen, living room and dining room. By expanding the deck space, and integrating an outdoor kitchen, we will create a much larger outdoor living space for this home.

We are almost done!!

With all the details almost complete this deck renovation has made quite the change for our homeowner’s outdoor entertaining space.  So much so, he has already had multiple gatherings.  It is that time of year in the Valley of the Sun to get out and enjoy our outdoor living spaces.  Fall, football and stunning sunsets set the mood.  The deck has electrical for misting fans, lights, and TV mounts.  There is an area for cabinets to be installed including a sink base, storage shelves, and a built-in barbeque.

The interior of the storage space walls is sheeted with plywood and painted gray as the perfect backdrop to the wall storage solutions and racks that will be installed for the work areas.  The ceiling was painted black to maintain the desired focus of the homeowner.

Excited for the finish to come soon as the details fall into place.  It is going to be perfect for entertaining and enjoying the gorgeous view of the valley.

A Look Behind the Walls

All that blown insulation settled into its spaces. Drywall installed on the ceiling. Plywood acclimating so it can be ready to sheet the walls once the ceiling is complete.

We are excited to continue to share our progress on this amazing two-story deck and storage room addition for our latest North Phoenix home remodel by giving you a look behind the walls. The back of the house faces north with a stunning view of Lookout Mountain Preserve and the northeast valley.  You can read about the remodel of this outdoor living space and storage room addition in its beginning stages here.

Behind the Walls of the New Storage Addition

With our Monsoon season almost ending we are getting quite the storm this week.  So, we are giving you a look inside, behind the walls, of this two-story addition.  This first floor is going to be a secure, temperature-controlled storage room.  With a ceiling height just over 9’-0” and over 200 sq. ft, this room below the new deck addition is the perfect space for additional storage. Above this new room addition will be an outdoor kitchen and additional deck space.

Take a stroll through the photos to see where we are currently in this process. We’ve captioned each of them to give you a look behind the walls.  We are excited to show you how this unique outdoor living space and storage room addition turns out in a future blog!

Trending Kitchen Storage and Design Ideas

Trending Kitchen Storage and Design

Your dream kitchen is just around the corner! Categorically, the number one desire in remodeling a kitchen is to create more storage in the existing space. Obviously, this is a great way to give your kitchen the functionality it needs, but you can also infuse it with creativity along the way.  Whether you are doing it yourself or having Tri-Lite Builders plan your new kitchen, you can be inspired by these trending kitchen storage and design ideas.

Reclaim and Recycle

Using reclaimed material is still on-trend and is expected to continue.  Reclaimed wood is everywhere and easy to find cost-effectively or even free. Old shipping crates, used pallets, and old furniture are all sources for wood recycling.  Using these materials may require sanding and refinishing to make the pieces usable.  Some recycled wood will work for a more rustic look. It all comes down to the finished look you desire.

Kitchen Pantry

If organization and saving money are your goal, consider building a kitchen pantry. When building a pantry, think about the space in relation to having all the food items and small kitchen appliances you need for meal preparation within easy reach.  Pantries are a great addition to keeping your weekly budget for groceries in hand since you can easily see what foods you have stored.

Material Combinations

Today’s trends invite you to think out of the box!  Create striking visuals by mixing materials and tones for your kitchen cabinets. You can get this effect easily by using different materials and/or shades for upper and lower cabinets. For example, consider wooden lower cabinets, and upper cabinets with metal for an interesting contrast. Alternatively, you could consider a dark wood for the kitchen island, white cabinets for the base cabinetry. You can also use glass or open shelving for the upper cabinets. No longer are matching cabinets a necessity for an attractive looking kitchen.  Choose materials that you like above any other factors.

Since you are designing the kitchen of your dreams, explore the different material choices as well as storage solutions.  Kitchen storage possibilities aren’t limited to cabinets or a pantry. You can use the same creativity in your materials and design for kitchen islands. Check online to discover more kitchen storage options that will make your kitchen uniquely yours!
