Season of Fun: 3 Summer Outdoor Living Upgrades for Your Home

With Summer officially here, pool parties and weekend BBQs are popping up all around.


In a brand new Sam Rodgers home, your summer is bound to get off to a hot start with the following upgrades. Let’s dive in!


  1. Outdoor kitchen

    Is there an outdoor living feature more attractive (and practical) than an outdoor kitchen? Grill up some burgers, set up a mini bar, and entertain family and friends all summer long. While the family relaxes in the pool, you can play host and chef while spending time with everyone in the warm weather. Speaking of pool…

  2. Pool

    If your new home doesn’t already have one, now is the time to add it to your outdoor living experience! A place to splash around and cool off for your loved ones (and little ones) will provide endless entertainment all throughout summer.

  3. Tiled patio

For a more luxurious look, build your custom patio with porcelain, brick, concrete, or stone tile. Ideal for Florida’s wet season, all four of these tiles detract water easily, so you don’t have to worry about anyone slipping and falling on a humid or rainy afternoon.
