Dreambuilder Custom Homes recently created a backyard oasis for the Byrd family in Jacksonville Beach, FL, known as Dreambuilder Six. 

A backyard transformed into beautiful living space

The Byrds spend much of their time outdoors and wanted a space that was comfortable, practical and beautiful.  “My husband and I needed help tackling a backyard project,” said Sherri Byrd.  “We envisioned our backyard as an extension of our indoor living space, yet we were somewhat limited when it came to turning those dreams into a reality.” 

Dreambuilder worked with the Byrds to create a plan of several outdoor rooms, starting with their covered porch as a sitting area.  Using pavers, additional areas for entertaining, cooking and ‘sleeping’ – with hammocks – were created.  Different pad sizes and elevations were used to create visual interest.  Crowning the entire project was a beautiful cypress pergola, custom designed for the space.

“Shawn came over and took us through the design process. He listened closely as we described our likes, dislikes and the overall theme we were going for,” said Sherri.  “Now we’re enjoying our backyard oasis every day.”

Best of all, Dreambuilder kept the project on budget and delivered value that other contractors could not.  Sherri explains, “We received a total of three estimates from various builders/contractors.  Needless to say, we chose Shawn’s Dreambuilder team!  He was able to put together a package that included MORE than the other builders were willing to offer… and at a better price!”
