We all know that having an outdoor entertaining space adds value and comfort to your home, both personally and financially. Also, we know that an outdoor living space is most used in the upcoming months, even though today’s spaces can be designed and built for year-round use thanks to outdoor heaters, fireplaces and fire pits. Now, here we are in May with longer days and perfect nights for spending outdoors. If you’re wondering whether if it’s too late to kick off your outdoor living space project and still be able to enjoy it this summer, the answer is no.
However, like any other home improvement project, the trick to a successful outdoor living space project is to keep it on schedule. Our outdoor space and outdoor kitchen design, build and installation teams are masters at project management. Here are some tips we follow to help keep your outdoor living space project moving smoothly from start to finish.
We Plan Ahead. Way Ahead.
Before we kick off your project, we spend a lot of time working with you to plan out what you want to achieve, what materials you want and fit your budget, and how much time it will take to complete. Having a clear timeline helps keep everyone focused and ensures everything arrives on time to get the job done.

Speaking of Timelines…
Once the plan and design are in place, we set a timeline for your project. The scope of the project and how much time it will take to complete each stage are factored in. We try to avoid any unexpected delays, but weather can be an issue. It’s better to overestimate the time needed for the project since outdoor living space projects can be affected by weather and unforeseen issues not visible during the design phase.
Order Materials in Advance
One of the most common reasons for delays in outdoor living space projects is the late delivery of materials, especially with today’s backlogs and slower shipping times. To avoid this, we maintain close relationships with manufacturers and have many products in stock.
We Believe in Close Communication
Our teams communicate not only with you, but also amongst each other so everyone stays on the same page. If there are any issues or delays on your end, be sure to discuss them with us, and we can come up with a solution together. Of course, we’ll do the same.
We Keep Your Work Area Clean and Organized
Depending on the scope of your outdoor living space project, it could very well look a bit like a construction zone. However, our builders and installers keep it clean and organized. We take the time to clean up our work area at the end of each day, and keep all tools and materials organized. That way, we’re ready to start work each day and you don’t have to look at a mess.
