Meet the Owner

Bob Ryan has been in the home improvement industry for over two decades as a designer, builder, and manager, working closely with multiple companies throughout NC. Seeing a need for an upgrade in quality in materials and workmanship, he started Outdoor Lifestyles, LLC. He has put together not only the best designers and estimators, but teamed them up with the highest quality project coordinators to ensure a flawless and seamless installation of your backyard paradise.

Our ultimate goal is that every customer has pride in their project and faith in our company to proudly refer us to their friends and family.


Why Choose Us?

Simply put, you won’t get a better experience anywhere else. Unlike many custom deck builders in Winston-Salem, we believe in the power of a personal touch. We won’t just send a salesperson out to get your signature and collect a check. We will be with you every step of the way throughout your project. Bob is your point of contact from the initial consultation to the completion of your custom outdoor living space. He oversees the entire job and all contractors involved, ensuring quality workmanship and site cleanup.

(You may even catch him swinging a hammer!)
