Elite Summer Livin'

Bring the Outside In, and the Inside Out

Coloradans love summertime living. With blue sky for miles and views from Pikes Peak to Longs Peak, who wouldn’t? An all-season outdoor space helps extend deck season beyond the summer months, akin to adding a room to your home.

That’s precisely what this Westridge homeowner wanted. Sitting on the southwest border of Highlands Ranch, the orientation of their home offers expansive mountain views right out the back door. 

They called on Elite Landscape & Outdoor Living to turn their exposed concrete patio into a year-round outdoor living space.  

“We liked the idea of having an extension of our family room to the outdoors. We also wanted to maximize our unobstructed views of the mountains.”

“Our favorite feature of the project is the 20-foot glass wall and door. It opens up our great room, brings in more light, and has transformed the inside of the house as well,” the homeowner tells us. “People come in through the front door and are instantly drawn to the patio for the views of the backyard and mountains.”

Once outside, the patio cover and deck extension spaciously fit an outdoor lounge area, dining table, cooking space, and fire pit. The homeowners use this space for entertaining, basic weeknight dinners, watching tv, and sitting around the fire pit. They can open the glass sliders completely to invite people directly outside. The patio roof both shades the space during summer months and retains heat from wall-hung heaters during cooler months.

Year-round outdoor livin’. It’s a Colorado thing.

“People come in through the front door and are instantly drawn to the patio for the views of the backyard and mountains.”
