Enjoying Your Outdoor Living Space During The Holidays

What is a better way to enjoy the holidays than get-togethers with family and friends? Every year, the holidays roll around and people start planning how and where they are going to spend their time. The hosts are often stressed out and worried about accommodating the number of people in attendance, having enough space for catering, having the cooking space required to prep and cook the meals, and making sure that guests are comfortable and having a good time.

The last holiday get-together that was a nightmare is usually the start of designing a new outdoor living space that will serve as the background to a time-honored tradition and event that leaves lasting memories. Verum Construction is a family-owned company with more than 30 years of experience in helping homeowners create a space that fits their wants and needs. Holiday get-togethers are a common reason to expand or add-on to a home, especially as your family grows and expands.


With all of the experience our team has had in designing the perfect outdoor living spaces, we know how to tackle the important details so that you get the space that will be and do everything you need it to. And everything that you might not think about.


  1. Outdoor lighting – Remember that during the holidays, the sun sets earlier. It gets darker faster. To create the perfect space, you want to spend some time thinking about the type of lighting that you need. Outdoor lighting isn’t just a remarkable feature of your outdoor living space during events, but it can create instant curb appeal, beauty and festiveness.
  2. Warmth and Comfort – The holidays are going to get cold. Your outdoor living space should have enough comfort and warmth to support the seasonal temperatures and make sure your guests are cozy. This could include multiple fireplaces, fire-pits or other outdoor heating sources. Roasting marshmallows might never be as comfortable, fun, and festive as it is around a fire pit in your outdoor living space.
  3. Cooking – Don’t miss out on connecting with family and friends because you must be the one inside cooking. You can bring the cooking outdoors with an amazing kitchen design, fully equipped to house, prep, cook and serve the meals. Verum Construction has been doing this for long enough that we know what rules and regulations we must follow to create the safest cooking environment that functions great.
  4. Sound – If you plan to have an event over Thanksgiving or Christmas in your outdoor living space, nothing is going to make that event more festive than having the perfect music or movie playing in the background. Christmas music is essential in making the event magical and our team can make sure that your space is designed to enhance the quality of the sound.


If you aren’t sure exactly what you want to do with your outdoor living space to make it perfect for your holiday needs, don’t worry. Verum Construction can help you brainstorm, plan, and create a space that you will love for years to come.
