Outdoor Living

Outdoor patios are a unique feature in the benign California climate. Even with our cool summer evenings on the Central Coast, a patio can be used all year long. A patio becomes a functional and pleasant expansion of living space. A patio can:

  • provide pleasant views into side and back yards;
  • reclaim a portion of your front yard behind a low wall;
  • enlarge your kitchen with outdoor appliances;
  • expand living space for entertaining family and friends.

When we added to our own home, the skilled workers from Chapin Construction installed interlocking pavers. On one side, a low curved wall separates the patio from the rest of the backyard landscaping. A curb on the other side defines the planters. By adding a wood table with chairs and a sun umbrella on our patio, and we have immeasurably increased the enjoyment of our home.
