One of our favorite signs of spring is the scent of charcoal smoke wafting through neighborhood backyards as families ready their grills for the first cookout of the season. Dining al fresco is a great way to spend time with family and friends, enjoying nature and trying out new recipes. Plus, according to a report from the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association, 54% of Americans say they make healthier, fresher food choices when they cook outdoors
Last week the DIY Network debuted Mega Decks, a new series about luxury outdoor living spaces constructed by Gail and Garth Hyland’s innovative deck and landscaping company Colorado Custom Decks. The construction team’s architectural challenges include building incredible fire features, outdoor entertainment systems, waterfalls and water features, pergolas and outdoor kitchens. The decks they build are unparalleled in terms of amenities, comfort, and design. They also feature Infratech heaters.
We’re pleased to share that Infratech was featured in “High-Tech Outdoor Entertaining Tips,” a recent blog story by one of cable’s highest-rated networks, HGTV. The home improvement channel is distributed to over 99 million homes in America and is currently the nation’s fifth ranked cable network. HGTV’s affiliated magazine is the #7 best-selling monthly magazine, with a digital circulation of over 103,000 subscribers. The piece was written by digital lifestyle expert Carley Knobloch, who is also a contributor to NBC’s TODAY show and CNN.
Ultra-luxury housing is on the rise, thanks to entertainment and tech industry titans and overseas buyers looking to invest in lavish trophy properties. Recently The Wall Street Journal took a peek at the eight-to-nine figure price tag homes developers and investors are building on spec, in hopes of attracting wealthy home hunters. These palatial estates contain master bedrooms and in-home spas the size of the average American home, plus—in certain cases—the largest IMAX theatre ever installed in a home, and a $200,000 sweets-stocked “candy bar.” For these high end clients, Southern California-based designers/builders Shelly and Avi Osadon of See Construction choose only the highest quality homebuilding materials.
