Porch & Backyard of the Reynold's Residence @ GregMix.com

French doors were placed at the rear of Great Room to allow access to the Back Porch and skylights were placed in the roof of the Back Porch to bring in more daylight. An outdoor stone fireplace was added in one corner of the back porch. During construction the owners decided to eliminate the screens and open the Back Porch up to extend the blue stone flooring out onto a large patio in order to create a large outdoor living space. The patio is curved along the back edge with a low stone wall which separates it from a planting bed with a curved walkway made from chips of blue slate.

Love this - this looks like our design - extending the outdoor patio through rear of the Great room. I really like the idea of adding skylights in the slide roof. This is what we are looking for - an extension of living space from indoor to outdoor. Don't need the fireplace or French doors. Prefer a 'proper' patio bi-fold or sliding door. Open to suggestions
