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!
Ryan, our project manager, was both attentive and patient with every request, question, and concern that we raised at any point throughout the duration of the project. He was always a phone call or text away, responding every time in an impressively timely manner. He listened to and accommodated our requests, but he also offered suggestions to broaden our imaginations as to what we could create with simple adjustments to our design.
