From infinity pools, to beyond, these outdoor spaces challenge the idea that home is (only) where the house is. Our profiles showcase backyards that feel more like natural extensions of each home, with finishing touches that align not only with the homeowners’ needs, but also their personalities. Finishing touch spotlights include a gorgeous, freestanding fireplace, a poolside putting green and an outdoor sports bar, as well as an infinity pool that seems as if it flows directly into Table Rock Lake. In these three profiles, we speak to both homeowners and contractors, covering spaces from ground-level to vaulted, and learn that when building and designing in southwest Missouri, the possibilities are truly awe-inspiring. Join us as we peek inside the outside of three spaces that offer something for everyone, challenging the notion that a home’s living space exists only within its walls, while also providing plenty of inspiration along the way.
