Blueprint for Improvement: An outdoor oasis in west Carmel


This 1999 west Carmel home had a generously sized backyard with lots of potential. The project features a new three-season room, deck, pool and patio.


  • A three-season room was constructed in the footprint of the former deck and is located just off the kitchen.
  • Features includ vaulted ceilings and a beautiful stone fireplace.
  • Trex composite decking connects the addition with the outdoor dining area and built-in grill.
  • On the ground level, a paver patio surrounds the new pool and gas fireplace. Limestone steps connect the living area and enhance the natural beauty of the space.
