Paying attention to our fun series on lanais?
We’ve got another edition for you, this time how to get the lanai you want in your new custom Florida home — because you can.
By now you likely know the definition of a lanai, but just in case, it’s an outdoor living space common in coastal and tropical locales, that’s covered and paved with a hard surface.
Every ICI Homes floor plan comes with a lanai proportionate to its square footage. So, you don’t have to negotiate add-ons to get a finished outdoor living space for your new custom Florida home.
Imagine lounging under shade and a ceiling fan, perched in your favorite lounge chair atop a smooth concrete or stone tile floor. That’s one way to enjoy a lanai. Another way is jumping in the swimming pool just beyond the lanai.
We have several other suggestions, especially for those of you who don’t have to stick so tightly to a construction budget. Here are three more out-of-the-box ways to splurge on your new lanai.
The outdoor gourmet
Dig grilled anything? Smoked meats and vegetables? Enjoying it year-round instead of only in warmer months? You can cook outdoors almost any time in Florida, even in the northern part
