Project of the Month: December 2022

November 17, 2022 Project of the Month

This home had a large pool in the yard and a very small covered area, but the homeowner was looking to upgrade the entire yard and create their own paradise.

TCP added a new patio cover along the side that includes an outdoor kitchen and fireplace. We upgraded the existing cover as well as added a pergola and firepit.

We added about 1000 square feet of new stamped concrete to the backyard. The new covered outdoor living area is roughly 435 square feet with a high-vaulted ceiling and an open gable on the end and along the front side. The ceiling is English Porter pre-stained tongue and groove from Woodtone. The outdoor kitchen was placed at the end and is also an L-shape to allow plenty of room for the 40” grill, sink, outdoor-rated fridge, and storage. All appliances RCS are from Cunningham Gas, while the counter has a raised bar top for seating on the outside and is Coffee Brown Leather granite from Instyle Granite.

We placed the fireplace along the side to help provide privacy to the yard. It is a custom-built gas fireplace with an insert from Perfection Fireplace, and all of the stone caps are Chiffon Moire Ashlar Natural White from Apex Stone. The fascia of the fireplace, kitchen, and columns are Blanco Chopped from Rock Materials, and the mantle is custom-stained cedar.  On the far side of the pool, we added a gas firepit. All stones and caps match the rest of the project, and the black lava rock to fill it is from Republic Gas Bowls.

To upgrade the existing patio cover, we changed out the ceiling to match the new cover and hung new lighting. To extend their space along the home, a new pergola was added. At roughly 185 square feet, this structure has a Hercules Pergola Cover from Cover Your Pergola to keep everything nice and dry underneath.

This backyard is now truly a place to Live it Out.

Host a Family Gathering with Outdoor Style

January 9, 2015 Outdoor Living

It may be January, but at Texas Custom Patios we’re gearing up for summertime. An outdoor living space is perfect for hosting an extra large crowd for your summer Family Gatherings. You may be celebrating the graduation of someone special. Or maybe someone is tying the knot with friends and family gathered for a wedding. You could simply be trying to keep the gang cool with a pool party. Or maybe you’re celebrating your roots with a family reunion. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite outdoor style ideas for your summer celebrations.

Graduation

These custom graduate yard signs would be perfect for a backyard graduation celebration. Plus, who doesn’t love another reason to show off those fantastic graduation portraits?

Wedding

Install a chandelier (or two!) in your outdoor living space. This royal look is fit for a wedding celebration.
