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!
Rob came by our house and looked at what we wanted. We wanted our patio to cover a width of 50 feet between our bedroom and garage. Our garage was not parallel to our house and posed a building problem, but Rob solved that problem and blended our patio with our house and the garage. The crews were very professional and did a fantastic job. They cleaned up after themselves every day, and the backyard was immaculate when they finished. Rob did a fantastic job designing our patio the way we wanted it to be. Texas Custom Patios was the only company that also properly designed the patio for us. We love the results and would only recommend them to anyone else looking to add an outdoor living area to their home. They are a first rate company.
