This project added a 1200-square-foot patio cover, a new composite deck, an outdoor kitchen, and a fireplace equipped with drop screens to close off the entire space. They already had a minimal covered space and an extended deck, but we created a much larger space with an area for their hot tub.
The covered patio now extends out along their driveway and the back of their home, creating an L-shaped cover with lots of space for outdoor living. The ceiling is 1X6 pre-stained Texas Honey Brown tongue and groove. All of the flooring is Ivory Beige Versailles pattern travertine from QDI. The columns and fascia of the kitchen and fireplace are full stone. Motorized DropShade screens were installed to keep those pesky bugs away.
This kitchen has an RCS brand grill, an outdoor fridge, a sink, and lots of storage. Granite for the kitchen is New Venetian Gold from MS International. Having a bar top island is the perfect way to create additional seating and serving space. This outdoor kitchen is truly perfect for outdoor cooking.
The fireplace is a masonry wood-burning fireplace with a stone hearth and extended seating wall, with a mantle made of stained cedar. Low-voltage lighting is placed all around the space, on the fireplace, and around the kitchen island. We also installed Bromic heaters around the patio cover to make the space useable year-round.
We also built an elevated composite deck to hold the hot tub just steps away from the covered space, leaving the client with a perfect way to finish up a long day.
This space is large enough to allow for large gatherings and not feel cramped. With two living room areas, a pool table, a dining area, a large kitchen, and an open deck with a hot tub, why would you ever go inside?
