When hurricane winds tore down the screening and the surrounding landscaping, this home was left with more then the obvious tangible items missing. The privacy granted by nearly 20 years of growth was gone as well. The “repair” design offered more benefits than the standard package though. This design, including a perimeter wall, allowed for greater privacy with added security, a summer kitchen, an outdoor entertainment area with built-in seating and fireplace, mood lighting, and multiple water features. The space, once existing as a mere back porch and pool deck, now effectively doubles the living area of this traditional Florida home.
