The long awaited official start of summer is quickly approaching. With longer days and shorter nights, many of us will find ourselves enjoying our free summertime outdoors. At Strobel Design Build, we are here to help give you a few ideas of how we can design the summer home of your dreams!

Poolside Oasis


When you think about summer, you think about poolside fun! Pools make a great addition to any Florida home. Pools give us an area to escape the heat, relax, and have a great time with close friends and family. To keep everyone nice and comfortable, Adirondack chairs are the way to go. These chairs are great for sitting back and relaxing with a good book. A great way to make them fit in more with the summer theme is to have the chairs be a bright color. One way to up your pool game is to add a slide or a diving board. Everyone loves a good cannonball contest! If you have kids, they’ll thank you later.

Whether you are having a large get-together or a comfy night in with the family, an outdoor movie screen is entertaining for everyone. The movie screen can be used for a kid’s sleepover or nighttime pool party, or it can be used by the adults when friends are over.

Wrap-Around Deck


A long wrap-around deck is perfect for a home with a view. Being that we are in the beautiful sunshine state of Florida, take advantage of all that gorgeous natural scenery! By simply putting a nice table and chairs out on the deck, it can completely transform space into an extended living room. It now can make a great place to start your morning by watching the sunrise with a nice cup of coffee or to watch the sunset and enjoy the outdoors while sharing a meal together.

Backyard Escape


A backyard patio can serve as an important summer hub for your family. Make memories together by having a cookout and installing a grill to serve up some tasty hotdogs and hamburgers. Simply sit outside and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while your children play in the pool! Another fun idea for the backyard is to put in a fire pit. The perfect summer night can be completed with everyone’s favorite guilty pleasure, s’mores! Also, families with young children will love a rope swing like this one. An alternative for this would be a porch swing the whole family could use together. The backyard is an area that can be used in so many different ways and be personalized for each individual household.

This is the summer for improvement! Take the time to update the outside your home now so that your family and friends can utilize and have fun in the space for this summer and many more to come. The Strobel Design Build team creates an effortless renovation process – When all is done, all that is left is to sit back, relax, and enjoy your newly renovated home!
