Popular Summertime Projects for Better Outdoor Living

Over the last few years the trend has been to create outdoor living spaces that provide many of the comforts and conveniences previously found only inside the home.  These enhanced living  and work spaces often require additional wiring and electrical outlets to accommodate new entertainment, cooking and work items.

Some of the most popular projects include:

Deck with Lighting

Landscape and accent lighting add to the ambiance of your outdoor space.

Landscape Lighting
Landscape lighting can really make your home, walks, landscaping and hardscapes sparkle after dark.  Additional lighting for decks, patios, pergolas and gazebos can let you enjoy these spaces late into the evening.

Pools and Hot Tubs
Have a pool that needs extra lighting around it, or want to install a hot tub or spa? These offer a great way to relax and enjoy the hotter weather.

Outdoor Kitchens
Cooking outdoors has always been fun.  Taking it to the next level with an outdoor kitchen adds a whole other level of capability.
