Add Height and Depth with A Structure

You may not even realize how much your space needs a structure to transform it into the place to be. A structure can be functional and beautiful while bringing the space together with a design. An addition like a quality pergola or pavilion will not only enhance your life, but will also bring up the value of your property. It’s an investment in your home and your future!

Quality Starts With Design

IBD Outdoor Rooms brings quality outdoor products to your door, starting with the material our products are made of. We work with the best partners to insure that our lumber is the best quality possible for our customers. This allows you to get more for your money, and best combination of price, color, longevity, and finish. All of our pergolas are made with Douglas Fir to offer the desired appearance and diminish warps and twists.

The design itself lends itself to architectural beauty. Gently curved beams and arched braces create elegant structures that enhance any space. You can choose from standard designs and sizes, or opt for a custom design with our same sturdy and beautiful lumber. At IBD Outdoor Rooms we specialize in pergolas and pavilions, both standard and custom designs. Pergolas consist of beautiful framework that can be adorned with curtains and trailing plants. Pavilions are structures that usually have no walls and a solid roof. Both are great options for all regions and climates.

Pergola or Pavilion?

Standard designs include the 2 post and 4 post pergolas, hip roof pavilion, and gable pavilion. The roofs on pergolas are left unfinished. In order for your pergola to offer desired shade, you can opt for a crosshatch roof, east/west orientation, and curtains to top it off. Pavilions are roofed and are great for use in all seasons. IBD offers decking kits, cedar shingles, thatch roofing, Sunbrella awning fabric, and more. For the best ideas for your outdoor space, check out our photo gallery. You can even combine two designs or customize your own. The best way to decide what type of design will work for your space is to speak with an expert!

Your outdoor fun doesn’t have to end when cool weather hits. At IBD Outdoor Rooms, we have great options for your outdoor space that are durable, practical, and stylish.

Your Dream Space

When 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.
