This homeowner desired a backyard space to allow them to live and entertain – they often throw work and neighborhood parties and wanted to have a space that would be comfortable for all.
This home was built in the 90’s and was in definite need of a makeover. The orange/pinkish brick no longer matched the homeowner’s style. They had remodeled the interior of their home and needed to have an outdoor space that reflected that new style.
The ceiling is a pre-finished wood material with a beautiful natural look. It is vaulted with a false open gable to highlight the fire feature. To give them the softer look they were looking for, we lime washed the brick with a light gray to remove the orange/pink color.
We created a two-tiered, double sided modern fire feature. It has a unique encaustic style tile pattern on the bottom tier and stacked stone on the top. The same stacked stone was used on the base of the columns, kitchen and knee walls adjacent to the fire feature.
The small outdoor kitchen consists of an RCS grill and side burner, storage drawers and door and a fridge. The stacked stone and the exotic gray granite finishes the kitchen perfectly. There are 3 beautiful pendant lights above the area.
This space was created so the family could enjoy the outdoors all year long. Decorated for Christmas, this patio cover gives the homeowner some extra living space, The fire will take off the chill of the winter days and nights.
To create a smooth transition from out to in (or in to out) we removed the traditional door and windows and replaced them with modern 2 panel and 3 panel sliding doors.
The new outdoor living room has added tremendous value to the home. It is basically an additional 500 SF room… open to the outdoors!
I have a lot of experience with construction and renovations, so some contractors find me annoying at best. My outdoor living project was larger than I was able to take on as it entailed adding an outdoor living area, kitchen, dining room, and bathroom with a fireplace and fire pit. It’s built onto an existing structure with a tile roof in a seamless manner. The completed project is amazing, and was featured in the Houzz project of the month for December 2013. It was a very large project so it took a long time to complete, however the process was absolutely painless. In my previous experiences, I have always had issues with miscommunications and added costs, among other things. My experience with Texas Custom Patios included NONE of these issues. The finished project far exceeded my expectations. The workmanship was superior, and the quality of the products is top of the line. I truly highly recommend them.
