This home has a whole new look and they are able to use the space all year long. Adding a great outdoor living room complete with a fireplace, large living area and retractable screens to close off the space.
The homeowner wanted to update their backyard that already had a unique shape and feel. They wanted a new covered space and fire place.
This space was updated with new sliding doors and 16X24 Riviera Tumbled travertine pavers from QDI. It is a perfect area to enjoy the outdoors and a bit of sunshine.
The back side of the fireplace creates a great wall for privacy to the outdoor living room from the neighbors. The stacked stone gives the patio cover a great texture. The small triangle spaces at the top have actual windows in there to help keep the space conditioned and protect the area when the weather is cold.
This area also had new sliding doors installed to replace outdated French doors. The space is a gabled roof with a vaulted ceiling of custom stained pine and cedar beams. This space is right at 400 SF.
Adding retractable screens to this project allows the homeowner to completely close off and protect the space from the sun or cold weather or from any bugs. The screens were added along both sides of the patio cover as well as in the window spaces on each side of the fireplace.
We were not able to run a gas line to create a gas fed fireplace, so an electric heater fireplace was installed. Electric heaters were also installed along the ceiling to create a nice and cozy space.
We love our new patio cover and would definitely recommend Texas Custom Patios. Our contractor, Mark, and everyone that worked on our project was professional. The patio cover looks like it was built when the house was built. They used top quality materials, the roofline is seamless, and everything matches very well. Great job completed in a timely manner and we are totally satisfied with the whole experience.
