Your Dream Space

Get Your Fall Project Started Now - Concord NC - IBD Outdoor RoomsWhen you begin thinking about your fall project, the sky is the limit. You can build up with a new pergola to lounge beneath on a cool evening while stars are out. You can choose to remodel and upgrade your fire or kitchen appliances, or start a new construction! Whatever you’re planning, start with IBD Outdoor Rooms for ideas and models to choose from. Next, hire a certified contractor for building and a certified technician or chimney sweep to install your fire appliances. At IBD Outdoor Rooms we turn fantasy into reality and safety is our top priority.

Outdoor Kitchens

Many homeowners find it cost-effective and beneficial to install an outdoor kitchen. It helps to keep a party from getting overcrowded in the house. It helps to keep noises, odors, and heat from getting inside. An outdoor kitchen also creates a great focal point for a landscape. Since it will likely become the focal point of your yard, make sure it’s a beauty! When you shop IBD Outdoor Rooms, you have control over the shape, size, model, and finish of your outdoor kitchen islands, cabinet units, ovens, kamado grill spaces, and more.

Outdoor Fireplaces

The kitchen will likely strike the interest of the Grill Master, but the fireplace or fire pit will get all the attention from everyone else. You can choose a fire pit that fits the size and shape of your space and select a finish that fits your personality and your landscape. You can also get it installed before fall. Only if you start this summer!

Beautify for Fall

You may not be interested in outdoor entertaining at all, but want to increase the aesthetic. You can invest in your property’s look by installing a new mailbox, lamppost, pergola, or even a custom structure or building. If your mailbox is drab and rusted, or even leaking or collecting bugs, consider a new mailbox. Our mailboxes and lampposts are sure to increase your curb appeal, are designed to “break-a-way” if hit by a car, and can be matched to your landscape through a variety of finishes. Many of these extras are perfect for a do-it-yourself project and can be completed before cold weather hits this fall.

If it’s a pergola or pavilion you want, it will be best to build in the summer. Winter ground can be difficult to work with and to install an adequate floor and foundation. Check out designs or discuss custom structures with an IBD Outdoor Room expert, and we’ll make sure it arrives in time for construction! All you need is a contractor to do the work.
