Contemporary Screened Porch in Houston

This home had a worn-out pergola that didn’t provide any shade.  A much nicer space was desired for the family to enjoy their back yard.


The pool was great, the yard was great, but they needed a much nicer space!

New Screened Patio

The new screened in patio is about 430SF with a gabled roof and a vaulted ceiling. The knee walls are brick and are painted to match the home. Hardie trim was used to finish out the screened area.

Warm and Cozy

A gas fireplace was built at one end of the porch. It is a 42″ gas insert with herringbone pattern from Perfection Fireplace. It is faced with painted brick and has a raised hearth.

Outdoor Kitchen

The outdoor kitchen was built at the other end of the screened porch. It is just an 8′ kitchen but has plenty of room for prepping and serving a delicious meal. The appliances are from Cunningham Gas (@RCSGasGrills) and include a 38″ grill, vent hood, storage and an outdoor fridge. The counter is silver gray granite from InStyle Granite. It is also faced with painted brick to give the space a cohesive look.

Ceiling and Flooring

The ceiling Woodtone Real Soffit pre-stained tongue and groove – West Coast IPA. The floor is just concrete.

A final look…

This screened porch is exactly what was needed to complete this backyard. Imagine yourself wrapped in a blanket with the beverage of your choice in front of the fire while a steak is grilling… Perfection.
