We recently graced the cover of the Houston Remodeling Guide, where they are talking all about outdoor trends. Often times, you may find yourself wondering if you have enough space to build something enjoyable. Or maybe you have a lot of space and don’t know how to make it cozy …
Check out this great article on how to get a functional and fun outdoor living space!
“I’ll start my diet on Monday,” “I’ll start exercising after we get back from vacation,” “I’ll slow down and try to enjoy life after my next big promotion.” These are all things that many of us say too often. With 2017 comin’ in hot, you’ll be telling yourself … I’ll just make it my new year’s resolution and start next year, right?
Speaking of resolutions, here are the TOP TEN resolutions made year after year.
10. Read more
9. Travel more
8. Learn something new
7. Won’t make a resolution
6. Get organized
5. Spend more time with family and friends
4. Spend less, save more
3. Enjoy life to the fullest
2. Lose weight
1. Stay fit and healthy (we have all done that one before)
While we agree with staying fit and healthy, we agree with number 3 the most. Everyone should enjoy life to the fullest! So when you’re brushing your teeth, do a little dance. When you’re checking out at the grocery store, stop to smile and say hello to the person behind the counter, and most importantly when you’re in your backyard, have a place you are proud to call home.
Go ahead, fantasize for a moment. Which of these do you like the best?
Now we realize you may have to do a little of number 4 before you can start ripping up grass and laying concrete, picking out grills and paint colors, but you can get there! We have a nifty little timeline to help you, too! If you are set on having a custom patio built by a certain date, the guideline below will help you know when to get started.
We worked with Mark, who came to us with plans and fully explained the costs, materials, timeline, and talked about the construction methods. The project was well organized, with a new crew arriving once each stage of construction was completed. I kept a photo record of it, which was fun and friends are wowed by the timeline. I completely recommend Texas Custom Patios.
