Designing/building this outdoor living area was a challenge. The homeowner wanted to create an open outdoor area that would flow from the inside to the outside. At first glance, the outdoor space looks like a fully-furnished indoor living room…exactly what the homeowner desired. It gave them room to expand and enjoy the outdoors.
The sitting area was built with a custom fireplace and is a great space to sit and visit.
The seating area flows into the kitchen that has arched openings. Along with the dining area, there is a bar top counter for additional seating.
The additional uncovered patio area has a custom built firepit.
Custom 4 leaf folding doors were installed to give the homeowner the indoor/outdoor feel. The ceiling is stained reclaimed lumber with reclaimed hemlock beams and mantle on the fireplace. The walls are stucco to match the home with manufactured stone accents for the columns and fireplace. The roof is clay tile to match the home. The floor is an Italian tile that resembles hand-scraped cedar.
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!
