House Exterior - Rear

The covered back porch was an absolute must have in this build. The space is accessible from either end of the open floor-plan great room and wraps around to the master bedroom sitting room (shown in other pictures). The built-in grill is a 48" Lynx and is connected to the house's natural gas line. Although not installed at the time of these pictures, a 50" LED/LCD screen will be installed above the mantel on the fireplace. The fireplace is wood burning with a natural gas starter.

Also, please note that our roof extends past the edge of the covered porch by about a foot. There is a raised ledge, like a small backsplash, from the edge of the covered porch to the back of the grill. That ledge is maybe 10" wide. The grill is then about 24-25" deep. So, the back of the grill is recessed from the edge of the roof by around 2 feet. The front of the grill is recessed from the edge of the roof by closer to 4 feet. The grill and grilling area never get wet during a rain. Hope this helps.
