This older home needed a backyard make-over. The family needed some shade and a nicer area to entertain. They also wanted a small built in kitchen.
As one can see, the lack of a patio cover didn’t keep this family from using their backyard. But, they wanted something more – something that would provide some much needed shade and a place to relax after a long day at work.
The home had a wall of windows with French doors – adding the covered space really did just extend the living room.
The flooring is a herringbone pattern brick floor. It is the perfect accent for this 558 square foot patio cover. We needed to address a drainage issue, so installed a French drain system with black gravel. This not only serves the purpose of the drainage, but helps define the patio space.
We added an outdoor kitchen along the side wall. We had to build out a brick wall to go behind the grill. This kitchen has just enough space for prepping and serving meals and is equipped with plenty of doors and drawers for storage. The vent hood is covered with the same granite as the counter.
The stained beams on the ceiling really pop against the light paint of the tongue and groove. The hardie wrapped columns keep the style of the new space in line with the home.
This new space gives the family a great area to entertain or to just hang out and enjoy the day. The fire pit has a gas line run to it and allows them to take the chill off of a cooler day or evening.
We were incredibly pleased with Texas Custom Patios. Jeremy did an amazing job of keeping us informed, and the job was pretty much completed in the time he said. The workmanship was great and our patio looks like it was part of the original house design. I would recommend them to anyone who wants quality work done. Well worth the money we spent and we were pleasantly surprised that it was less than we thought it would be.
