Houstonians are gung-ho about the latest in “outdoor living.” The smallest improvement such as a small water feature, a new patio, or an addition, like a state-of-the-outdoor kitchen or built-in fireplace can change how we use and feel about our back yards.
After we visit, Outdoor Homescapes will build your own graphical tour with live blue prints that allows you to see your house and view how your new Homescape will look before construction starts!
This allows you to experience a movie-style walk through or over head fly-through in real time. Imagine standing at your new outdoor kitchen, watching your family and guests enjoying themselves at your new Homescape. Sit on your new patio extension and view your new landscape! This gives you a stunning, realistic representation of your ideas before you commit to a contractor, just a mouse click away!
