What's in a backyard, what do you need here. Well with the Tray House first you get a nice spot for a deck off the living area. This is your outdoor living spot, social place, extension of your living area in your own great outdoors. But you also get a nice patio between the carport and the living spaces, and a door straight in to the mud room. For what? Well, all I can tell you is that's where I'm putting my grill, and when friends are over the cooler with the beverages is going here too. So me and my pals can mind the grill and stay hydrated. And the car port is not bad next time you want to work on your car without standing out in the sun!
