Our July 2022 Project of the Month is our backyard reno. The homeowner was interested in creating a whole new look for their backyard. They were having a pool installed and wanted to create a larger outdoor living room to accommodate an outdoor kitchen, dining area, fireplace and sitting area. The yard had a small covered space with a small outdoor kitchen that was just not large enough for their lifestyle.
TCP designed and built a new 550SF patio cover attached to the home that included all of the items they were looking for. The new structure has stucco finishes to match the home and a beautiful wood tongue and groove ceiling (Real tone Fine Line Smokey Bourbon). The flooring they chose is a 16×32 Stones & More Burl White exterior tile from Thorntree.
The custom kitchen includes RCS brand appliances – 40” grill, cutlass side burner, drawers and doors, outdoor fridge, sink and an under counter ice maker. The counters are all a stunning granite from Pomogranit Stones called Titanium Leather finish. The waterfall edges create a very dramatic look. The outer edge of the island is faced with New Wave Crystal White Marble tiles from Thorntree.
The fire feature is a custom gas fire place with reclaimed firebrick in a herring bone pattern. The mantle is a custom floating mantle to create the perfect focal point of the space. The fireplace wall serves as the perfect stop for the putting green that was installed along the side of the home, as well as creating privacy from their neighbors.
Once the pool was installed, we added stepping stones around it to match the flooring of the new space. In addition to the new space, we updated the small covered area off the master bedroom to have the same ceiling and flooring as the new space.
This new outdoor living room was exactly what they were looking for.
