Decent Deck to PERFECT PATIO!
Blue Ribbon Residential Construction, Inc.August 13, 2013
While the original deck provided a convenient and sufficient space, the new stone patio lends easy access to the yard, a cozy yet spacious seating area for family gatherings and is in perfect proximity to the existing grilling gazebo. This project is a result of adding an additional six feet to the back of the home. The client is sure to enjoy this new outdoor living space for many years to come!

So much more space for activities!

Great expansion. Love the transition of grass/patio/deck that was incorporated.

My eyes kept playing tricks on me...optical illusion...thought you lost an upper room then it dawned on me that you bumped out the upper floor. Think I need new glasses
Stunning job!

Nice patio. Shame about the addition, which hides those great lines and makes the corner look quite boring.

Love that! I thought it looked pretty nice before, but the patio is beautiful and much more open to the yard.

I like it. While I agree with the comment about losing that nice corner, I believe it was worth it. Is it just the clarity of the new photo, or did the chimney stones get a little spruce up too? Just looks like you can see more stone definition, less mortar? Maybe it's my eyes. Very nice. Enjoy!

Like the transitions here - the hardscaping and stone - like it, no, love it! Nice choices and work!

Did they go to the expense and plant a full grown tree in the after picture?

I don't think so Barbara...looks like you can barely see the edging around the tree in the 'before' photo.

Thanks Cheryl, I kept comparing the two pictures and missed the edging. But then look at the windows in the two pictures. One has a tree at the edge and one doesn't. Where's Waldo?

llc333 - It looks like it actually got bigger. I had to click through several times, but look closely - they extended the house further back...

I LOVE this and can't believe anyone has a negative comment at all. I know the home owners will enjoy this new space.

I'm getting a kick out of the "trick photography angle".
The tree was always there....the camera just panned out more in after shot.
They added floor space to the second story....not remove it. You have to look harder my friends.

Posted on FB: I love the added floor space and the simplicity of the new roofline... the windows that were removed must have been a beast to control being too hot, too bright or too cold for a bedroom space and they did add the side windows to keep a view... and the new deck, well just spectacular!

I think there is no upper floor there - just a cathedral ceiling to the main floor. They lost the upper windows at the back but gained them on the side. Beautiful job - I love it.

If you look closely, they built an addition that filled in the L shaped niche in the original picture. The new stone patio extends out further than the original deck, so the picture was taken from an angle a little further back. This is beautiful. I'll bet the owners love it!
