A Cozy Outdoor Living Space

December 1, 2020 Outdoor Living

The sweaty summer days are behind us (we think), and cooler days are ahead! So as fast as we have forgotten how hot it can be, most of us will crave a cozy fire, super soft blanket and the feeling that the holidays are here!

Creating a winter wonderland is easy with a few essentials, we hope you keep warm and safe this season!

Tip #1 – Bring the Heat

If you don’t have a built-in fireplace or pit like the picture below, adding some heat to your area can be easy and affordable. Whether it be a propane fire pit, free-standing heater or classic wood burning fire feature, adding warmth is a necessity in keeping comfortable.

Tip #2 – Lighting

You will get a little lighting from the flames in Tip #1, but with the days being shorter through the winter, you’ll need to shed a little light on things. String lights are a great option not only for a source of light, but to create a warm ambiance! Candles also create a cozy setting for relaxing.

Tip #3 – Cozy Seating

The lighting can be just right and very relaxing, but if you’re sitting in something uncomfortable the whole experience can get ruined (just ask Goldilocks). There are so many options when it comes to outdoor furniture, try something that allows for deep seating and plush pillows… something where you can snuggle and sink. For added warmth and decor, include an oversized throw blanket… you’ll never want to go inside.

Tip #4 – Flooring

Whether your patio has nice flooring or not, consider adding an outdoor rug to warm things up and add some style. Today’s outdoor rugs are weather tolerant and come in a wide variety of sizes, colors and patterns. So many choices makes it easy to find a rug that blends with your overall outdoor living style.

If you’re gathered with family or having alone time with a good book, enjoy your surroundings and happy holidays!

Winner 75k – 100k

The homeowners wanted to add about 850 square feet of outdoor living space, so we added an expansive kitchen, living room and dining area.

They wanted a space that could blend with the architecture of the home along with the design of the pool. For details and pictures on this entire project, click here.

What to Expect During Your Virtual Consultation

April 7, 2020 Patio Contractor, Uncategorized

VIRTUAL INITIAL APPOINTMENTS DURING COVID-19

We are now offering complimentary virtual consultations in lieu of an in-home initial visit. As we continue to navigate through this ever-changing time in our world, keeping our customers and employees healthy is our top priority.

If you’ve been thinking about getting an estimate, but haven’t had time to schedule an appointment, now is a great time to do that! Here’s what to expect during your virtual visit.

STEP 1: CALL YOUR LOCAL OFFICE TO SET UP YOUR VIRTUAL APPOINTMENT:

HOUSTON: (281) 265-1994
DALLAS/FORT WORTH: (972) 915-2727

STEP 2: BE PREPARED

You will need a computer or tablet for your appointment (you will be asked to screen share). You’ll be virtually introduced with your one-on-one project developer and will be asked to email a few things:

  • Have a date and time in mind to schedule the virtual visit (expect 30 to 40 minutes)
  • A copy of your lot survey
  • Pictures of the back of your home or area you are considering for remodel
  • List of features you are thinking about (patio cover, outdoor kitchen, fire feature, etc…)

It’s helpful to know the different styles and features you like, so you are prepared during the virtual consultation. You can find many ideas by browsing our gallery, here. You can also explore ideas on our Houzz page, here.

STEP 3: VIRTUAL CONSULTATION

You will receive a follow-up call within 24 hours of your set appointment to ensure the date and time still works well for you. About 5 minutes prior to your appointment, you will be e-mailed a link that will allow you to share a screen with your project developer. You will get a phone call from your developer and will be asked to click on the link. Two important things to note here:

  • You will be able to see their screen, they cannot see yours
  • This is NOT a video call, so no need to do your hair
Screen Share

You will then have an open conversation about your wants, needs, obstacles and expectations. Again, please carve out 30 to 40 minutes for this conversation and have your questions ready! To help you as much in advance, click here for a list of frequently ask questions.

GOALS OF 1ST MEETING

-Review space

-Talk budget (budget blog, read ahead of time)

-Discuss a timeline (timeline blog, read ahead of time)

-Chat about design

STEP 4: VIRTUAL BID MEETING

There will be 7 to 10 days between your first virtual meeting and your second virtual meeting. At this meeting you will be shown the drawings and ideas created by your project developer.

These are just ideas and suggestions based on your prior conversation regarding what you hope to have built in the given areas discussed. Each and every project is completely custom, with measurements and ideas for your home only. You will also be able to view a multidemential rendering of your projected project as well.

Our Customers Love Us

We are very happy we chose Texas Custom Patios to build our dream patio/outdoor kitchen. Our project manager, Ryan, really listened to what we wanted and grasped our vision immediately. He was actively involved in the process from start to finish. Every question or concern was addressed immediately. We were part of every decision along the way, and were pleased with the flexibility of the process. Ryan had a positive “can do” attitude that was much appreciated through out. The various work crews were professional and always left the work site as clean as possible at the end of the day. The final product is absolutely breathtaking!
