Project of the Month: SeptemberOctober 4, 2022 Project of the Month
This home had a small balcony, a covered area, and a large backyard. However, the family needed more outdoor living and desired an outdoor kitchen, fireplace, fire pit, and another smaller patio cover.
To add to the existing space, TCP had to rebuild the side of the balcony so a roof could be added. We removed the railing, and a half wall was built to attach the new covered area for the kitchen. A covered area of about 185 square feet was added to cover the new outdoor kitchen. The kitchen includes RCS appliances – a grill, fridge, storage, and a griddle. The space is faced with Trespa Lumber to match the front of the home, while the granite is River White from MSI International. The bar top island is perfect and can be used for dining or a buffet if needed. A custom lattice privacy wall was constructed to add texture to the space. The new columns are faced with Rockmount Rustic Gold dry stacked stone from MSI International.
TCP created an additional covered area off the side of the home with the same stone columns. In addition, we installed a new door where a window had previously been. This allowed easy access to the space from the inside.
All the ceiling finishes are American Nut Brown pre-stained tongue and groove, and the flooring is Botanica Teak Matte tile from MSI International. A total of 915 square feet of concrete was poured and covered with this beautiful flooring. In addition, a free-standing fire pit was built between the two spaces.
Under the balcony, TCP did a total makeover. Including the ceiling refinish, we also added a gas fireplace using the same stone as the columns. The lattice work privacy wall extended along this section as well.
This backyard went from boring to breathtaking, giving the homeowner a great way to live outdoors.
