It didn’t take a pandemic and months of sheltering at home to make outdoor living a design priority for TJH. Livable outdoor spaces fit for working, playing, entertaining, and just chilling have always been a hallmark of our homes. That’s why covered living rooms, patio hardscapes, and outdoor kitchens are standard in our home plans.

“We have done a ton of consumer research about what people are looking for in a home today, and we know buyers want livability and private outdoor spaces.”
