Your Family’s Dream Outdoor Space

As summer comes to a close and the leaves begin to fall, you may fear your days of outdoor family activities are numbered. Don’t say good-bye to the outdoors just yet! Here are a few ways to keep enjoying the outdoor spaces you love long into the winter months.

Keeping Warm

The first way to warm your outdoor space is with a fireplace. Just like inside your home, Perkinson allows you to customize your fireplace to be built-in or free-standing with either a traditional or modern feel. You have the option of no-hassle gas fireplaces or nostalgic wood-burning ones to best fit your families’ needs. 


Another option is integrated porch heaters, which are installed in the ceiling during the construction of your home. With integrated or recessed options, your heater will provide a clean look that will blend perfectly into your home. Some families even prefer both a fireplace and heaters to keep porch or deck comfortably cozy in the winter months.

Screening In

Phantom Screens

Phantom Screens are a great way to protect your home or porch from insects while still enjoying the breeze. One of the best features of Phantom Screens is that they can effortlessly retract out of sight when not in use, and even be motorized. Each screen is made individually to fit any door or opening entirely as well as designed with colors and custom matching wood grain to match with your home.

In addition to selecting these features, you can also choose the type of mesh you want. The size of the mesh determines how much heat and light you want. The bigger the holes in the mesh, the more sun and air can flow through. Phantom Screens offers three different sizes to best suit your needs; insect, solar, and privacy.

EZE-Breeze Screen System

If you want the option of a fully insulated porch, but also enjoy the ability to have air flow through, the EZE-Breeze Screen System is ideal. Just like everything else, it’s customized to fit your home perfectly. EZE-Breeze uses sliding panels to fill the gap between screen enclosers to create an insulated room. The vertical units have four sliding vents that nest up or down over the attached screen. One of the best features of the system is the rugged vinyl glazing, which has the transparency of glass minus the cost or weight. With adjustable vents and plenty of mesh options, you get to choose whether you want your porch to be open or completely closed off from the wind, weather, or pollen.  

The experts at Perkinson Homes are ready to help you design the outdoor space of your dreams.


Any combination of screen and heat source will work well for your outdoor space; the hardest part will be choosing which ones you love more!
