What makes you feel like summer more than sitting on a porch, feeling the breeze or enjoying a family dinner el fresco? A screened-in porch allows you to make your outdoor space a full addition to your custom home. The mosquitoes and bugs can be awful in Wisconsin in the summer months and can make it almost unbearable to be outdoors. When the owners of Hidden Treasure designed their new home, they planned the home to have the outdoor space an addition to their home that they could truly enjoy.

A Custom Porch

The large porch runs to the full length of the home, giving ample space of relaxing and dining. With two pre-teens in the house, a carefully thought-out shower was even included, the perfect spot for showering off when coming off the lake. This inviting space makes a perfect place to gather friends and family, enjoy a meal or a drink and take in the great food, time with loved ones and beautiful lake views.


An Outdoor Fire Pit

Along with the screen porch, an outdoor fire pit was a must-have for this family. S’mores around a campfire and a gathering space on cool summer nights allows for another outdoor space to entertain and to relax. This family will enjoy using the outdoor fire pit well into the fall!

The lakeside of the Hidden Treasure is truly the “front” of the home and allows for taking all the advantages of the warm weather months and lake living. When designing and decorating the porch and patio, the goal of the owners was to create an inviting space that makes you feel like you are on vacation all year long. Colby Construction listened to this family’s desires, and we think that is exactly what was achieved!
