Summer Inspiration: Creating Exterior Designs with Wood Products

Tags: Project Inspiration

Summer is finally on the horizon, which means it’s time to get outside and enjoy all that the warm weather has to offer. And while vacations and weekend getaways are always nice to look forward to, having an outdoor space that lets you enjoy those long summer days from the comfort of your own home is even better. Looking for inspiration for your home's exterior? Check out these exterior designs created with wood products below.

The Perfect Framed Fire Pit

Outdoor fire pit

This outdoor fire pit is the perfect spot to sit back, relax, and enjoy those long summer nights. The unique hexagon shape helps take the space to the next level, making it feel a little more modern and luxurious than an ordinary fire pit. Framed by circle-sawn timbers and hanging benches, this cozy spot is what backyard dreams are made of!

A Stunning Backyard BBQ

Outdoor grill

Take your backyard barbequing game to the next level with a built-in pergola! We love how this homeowner created a cantilever-style pergola to help make this outdoor kitchenette feel complete. Made with circle sawn lumber and timbers, the unique texture and dark stain only help add to the sleekness of this backyard setup. Plus, it’s the perfect way to create some shade for the chef of the family!

Bringing the Outdoors In

While not fully outdoors, a screened-in porch is the perfect way to get some fresh air and enjoy the views while remaining protected from the rain, sun, and bugs. This beautiful screened porch features Douglas fir timbers that add a pop of warm reds and yellows that stand out against the gray siding. Circle sawn tongue and groove ceilings and recessed lighting give the space a unique flare that feels both upscale and inviting. What a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee!

A Functional Garden Spot

If you have a green thumb or are even just beginning your gardening journey and are looking for inspiration, look no further than this garden space. This homeowner used circle sawn lumber to create a tiered border for this expansive garden. By matching the retaining wall to the lumber used for the raised beds, they were able to effortlessly create a cohesive design that is both eye-catching and functional.
