Living Al Fresco
Covered porch addition by Pro/Craft Contracting Inc., 89 Cedar Ave., Lake Villa, IL 60046, (847) 265-9900, www.pccontracting.com
The owners of this Libertyville home were looking for a covered outdoor living area that could accommodate many people, but still feel cozy enough for one person to enjoy alone. Inspired by the serene wooded area adjacent to the property, the team at Pro/Craft Contracting Inc. designed the addition to have stone walls and columns with sandstone ledges, which nicely matched the existing chimney on the home. The space also features a tongue-and-groove pine ceiling, a floor comprised of pavers, a fireplace and a built-in stainless-steel
grilling station surrounded by granite countertops.
