Aside from front porches, are probably the next most popular trademark of a Southern home, and there is a very practical reason for their cultural prevalence. Decks are also a fantastic bridge to nature. They encourage more outdoor living while still offering the comfort of indoor living, particularly if you build a covered deck that affords shade. Decks are also particularly handy for hosting large parties so that you aren’t constricted to just indoor space.
If you’re up for taking on a bit more than just a deck, consider a sunroom addition. Enclosed porches significantly increase your home’s value since they up your square footage while also adding curb appeal. Sunrooms allow you to enjoy the outdoors in a clean and air-conditioned area. Another advantage to adding a sunroom or enclosing an existing deck is that yearly maintenance becomes easier. Since your space isn’t exposed to the elements, you won’t need to worry about power washing, resealing, repainting, or restaining your deck, and neither will you have to be concerned about finding time to clear cobwebs, leaves, and twigs before entertaining.
If your property affords the space, consider building an independent structure tailored to your needs. If you host regularly or have in-laws living with you, you may want to consider building a small guest house to afford both them and your own family more privacy. Guest houses are also a fabulous way to increase your monthly income since they offer an attractive rental situation.
Even if you don’t want to construct an entire guest house, your family may love being able to enjoy a stand-alone sitting area, a play house for the kids, or a green house for your gardening needs.
Another exterior feature to consider is your home’s façade. The street view is the first impression of your home that guests see, and you want the outside to reflect the historical charm of the inside. Whether you’re looking for a restoration or a complete remodel of your home’s exterior, Copper Sky has the experience to return your home to its historical glory.
