Deck and Patio House Plans

Nothing says summer quite like lounging on your deck with family and friends, the sizzling grill cooking some tasty food while you soak up the sun. Yet with many house plans, this is not in the picture. Far too many house plans neglect the deck, leaving untapped potential in the backyard. With Donald A. Gardner Architects, you can enjoy your backyard to the fullest by searching specifically for house plans with decks/patios.

Advantages of Deck/Patio House Plans

Why should you choose house plans with patio or deck designs included? No matter what house plan you choose, chances are good you are going to want a deck or patio at some point to help you enjoy and get more use out of your backyard. When you choose patio or deck house plans to serve as the foundation for your building goals, you are able to enjoy outdoor space that blends seamlessly with the design of your home. Many of the deck or patio home floor plans offered at Donald A. Gardner Architects have additional elements included — like three-season rooms with summer kitchens, water features built into the patio, or design elements that make the deck an important architectural element — that enhance the enjoyment of this outdoor space.

Consider, as an example, the design of The Travis. This spacious 2,863-square-foot home features a patio that connects seamlessly to a rear porch and side screened-in porch. This provides quite a bit of outdoor living space that feels as though it adds to the square footage of the property.

If you're in the market for something a bit smaller, The Avant, measuring 1,833 square feet, is a great choice. This home features a patio connected to a porch, and the patio includes plans for a spa or hot tub. Both The Avant and The Travis clearly show how our designs work the patio or deck into the home's basic architectural structure.
