A blank yard can also be expanded and transformed into a sunroom. That said, you would need to enclose the space and make sure the floor is well supported before adding any kind of heavy furniture to the new room. Aside from supporting furniture, the floor also needs to be stable enough to be the foundation for the intended structure to be built.
A shed is also one of the best additions to consider if you want to have more storage space for lawn equipment, holiday decorations or large items that children play with outside. The shed doesn’t have to be connected to the home. Connected or not, a shed can give you a way to utilize the open area.
For those on a budget, you may decide on building a simple patio instead. This will give you an area to enjoy time outside in the fresh air or a way to relax in the sun. An open patio also gives you extra space to entertain family and friends with a BBQ or another fun celebration during summer.
