From Inspiration to Reality

October 30, 2018 Patio Design
Often times we show you featured projects and give you the finished details, but omit all the hard work details between the before and after pics.  So here’s a look back at last month’s featured project and some of the grittier details of what it takes to do a project like this.
This home needed an updated look in the backyard. They had a small pergola over a small patio that just didn’t give them the outdoor living space they needed or wanted. The homeowner wanted a Tuscan/Old World look similar to the photo below.

 

Added Space

Texas Custom Patios added 705 Square Feet of covered space with this outdoor living space.  This is in line with one of our medium scale design/build outdoor living projects.

 

Cost

The cost for something similar to this will range between 50-70k depending on final selections.  We completely changed the look from an early 2000’s style to a Tuscan, classic vibe.

 

Time Range

On average this sized space will take 2-3 months of build time and take a few months of planning.  From the day the contract is finalized, we are roughly 4-5 months to completion!

New Year, New You

December 21, 2016 Outdoor Living

“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.

Our Customers Love Us

Steven was a true professional to work with. He spent time going over the possibilities for our patio as we have an unusual roof line. He kept his word about when he would be at the house and when his crew would begin working. It was a pleasure to work with someone that was honest and trustworthy. We LOVE our patio, it is a new room in our home. I would use Texas Custom Patios again and I would recommend them to others. Our patio is beautiful!
