Spring fever is real, folks. So let's start thinking about ways to enhance our outdoor spaces. You can add living space to your home with a sunroom or porch, or erect a separate structure, such as a pavilion, pergola, or outbuilding. With a covered timber frame you can enjoy fresh air even if it's raining. Whether you want to go big or small, timber framing is a great option for your project.
There are real benefits to adding an outdoor component on your property. The first is monetary. Outdoor living spaces increase the value of your home. But the best increase in value will be in your quality of life. Spending time outdoors can reduce stress in adults, and improve memory and attention in children. You'll add another entertainment area for friends and family to enjoy. Between relaxing, sharing family meals, and hosting friends and neighbors, it will become a favorite spot. Fresh air and sunshine are good for your health and happiness!
