Fall and Football: Creating Custom Entertaining Spaces in Your New Home

Outdoor livingWhen you step outside in the early morning hours to head to work, walk to dog or water your garden, you’ve likely noticed a reduction in humidity and a chill in the air. That means fall is coming and football season is near!

Along with fall and football season comes the desire to spend more time outdoors socializing and relaxing – from cookouts and tailgates to coffee on the porch and evening bonfires, it’s nice to be able to sit outside in the south without the humidity (or the bugs!)

Southern Living Doghouse PlanYou have a beautiful home full of comforts and unique spaces to call your own. Now isn’t it time for man’s best friend and your most loyal companion to have one of his or her own? J. Wright Building Company has you covered!

A breezeway between the rooms (the dogtrot) ensures your fur babies are buffeted by breezes, and operable front windows maximize airflow. In cooler months, the breezeway doors and front windows can close to keep out bustling drafts. (more…)
