Outdoor Room in Golden Valley
"DiGiacomo Homes has renovated our basement, our deck and patio, and our master bath. Rocky and Gigi DiGiacomo are different from any remodeling company I have ever worked with. They have a way of getting to know you and transforming a problem area in your home. They truly are designers of livable spaces. We won't sell our home now because it is exactly the way we want it!" — Kristi Druskin, Homeowner
This outdoor room is designed with space to relax, share meals, and entertain. The "floor" is made from permeable pavers, the "ceiling" from an open trellis. Color, complexity, interest, and a sense of privacy are introduced through hardscape — New York Bluestone slabs, stacked Waukesha wall stone, and perennial plantings. These hard surfaces form the room "walls" and visually anchor the new space within the yard. A built-in fire pit serves as a gathering point for evenings spent with friends and neighbors. The majority of the surfaces were designed to take advantage of eco-friendly, maintenance-free materials such as white Azek® trim, natural stone and recycled composite decking.
