A cozy space was created off to the side of the home to give the homeowners a space to enjoy their pool and backyard.
The home had a very blank wall on the side of the house. The small yard was wasted and the homeowner wanted a place to sit outside and enjoy their pool.
This patio cover has a small gabled roof to give the project some texture and allow for a higher ceiling underneath. This little room certainly gives the homeowner the privacy from their neighbors that they desired.
To help cut down on the amount of light that shines in during the late afternoon, the homeowner added a motorized retractable screen.
This space has a nice little seating area with a gas log fireplace as the central focus. The north wall is finished with cedar shingles and the vaulted ceiling is trimmed with cedar as well as the beams and columns.
The flooring is a Fiberon composite deck with hidden fasteners. A low maintenance option that allows for a rustic look. Low-voltage lights were placed in the edge bands of the deck.
I totally love our transformed backyard, which faces west and is consequently quite hot in the summer; the table umbrella just didn’t do much. Now we have a better patio, much more sophisticated looking and professionally done to match the existing house so it looks like it was always there. Great job!
