After a three-week construction project turned into an almost 3-month project, Scott Ehnes and his family were finally rewarded with the outdoor living space of their dreams.
After enduring one of the hardest winters on record that turned a three-week construction project into a 2 ½-month project, Indianapolis-based Scott Ehnes and his family were rewarded with the outdoor living space of their dreams.
“Our concept for this space—and by ‘our’ I mean ‘my wife,’ says Ehnes, “was that we wanted people entering the space to feel like they were walking into another room of our home.”
The couple accomplished their goal with an outdoor retreat that features a fireplace for gathering with friends for before-and-after dinner cocktails, plenty of space for their three kids—ages 10, 7 and 4—to run around, beautiful views of nature and a built in SABER SS 670 BI grill.
The grill is Ehnes’ first Saber and was recommended to him by Russ Greene, Director and Designer of Outdoor Living at Family Leisure. “Russ gave me a few options but when I watched the YouTube videos he sent me about the infrared heat on the Saber, I was sold,” said Ehnes. “It’s a very different experience cooking at such high heat but the food tastes incredible. There’s so much grilling area and no hot spots. We had a group of about 16 people over and I cooked chicken, steak and pork all at once and it all turned out perfect.“
Ehnes estimates he and his family spend at least five nights a week in their outdoor space. Although the couple uses the space to entertain, he notes they built the space first and foremost for their family. “We’ve got nature, wildlife, the White River, our kids are running around with their friends… there’s nothing about the space I would change.”
And that includes his SABER grill. “I love this grill,” says Ehnes. “It’s the perfect fit for our lives.”
