Exterior Additions for Cooler Weather

Cold weather is just around the corner… but that doesn’t mean you have to spend it inside! There are plenty of ways to stay warm and cozy outdoors, even in the coldest months. At First State Building & Design, we believe in spending as much time as possible outside. Here are some of our favorite additions to your outdoor space for the chillier months. 


Adding a sunroom is definitely the best way to maximize your time outdoors. These beautiful rooms can be easily added to any home, big or small. The best part? Sunrooms are completely customizable to fit all of your wants and needs.

Motorized Vinyl Screens

Vinyl screens are perfect for anyone who wants to keep the heat in without the commitment of a sunroom. Phantom screens are there when you want them and gone when you don’t. Functioning via remote, these vinyl screens run on tracks and retract back into their housing when not in use. 

Infrared Heaters

Bring on the heat! Bromic and Infratech heaters not only put off incredible warmth, but also heat the objects around them. This means that when the wind blows through, the heat is not lost, keeping your space warmer longer. Pair an infrared heater with vinyl screens and you’ll be staying warm all year long.

We hope these ideas help spend more time outdoors this year. All of the mentioned products are available from First State Building.  If you’re looking to build a deck, porch, patio or any other exterior space, FSBD offers custom deck and porch builds, hardscaping, creative masonry, outdoor entertainment features, like fireplaces and outdoor kitchens, and so much more. If you are looking to create the space of your dreams, give us a call and we’ll get you on the fast track to your outdoor oasis.
