During renovation at Two Creeks, the original screened porch needed to make way for the addition of the great room. But with the client’s love of entertaining, outdoor living was a must.
The outdoor living space flows from the great room’s south end, easily opening up outdoor options for events. The porch overlooks the valley and wraps around the house to a large grass lawn. Multiple access points off the side of the house mean roving in and out as the clients desire. With arguably some of the best summers in the world, Michigan’s cooler seasons prove a bit more challenging. The retractable screens and vinyl walls easily open and close this outdoor living room, where professional ventilation means using the commercial-grade stainless steel kitchen and pizza oven is as easy in November as in July. Vaulted, wood-paneled, heated ceilings to the porch, which has its own fireplace, dining room, and kitchen.
