This home backs up to Terry Hershey Park. The homeowner wanted to take advantage of this fantastic location by creating a large outdoor living space with great amenities, such as an outdoor kitchen, fireplace and dining area.
The roof structure needed to tie into the back of the home and the detached garage while looking as if it belongs on the home.
A Texas Custom Patios proposal includes a design drawing with specifications and dimensions.
The design process includes the preparation of rendered views and elevations so homeowners can see how the project will look on the back of the home.
Over 600 square feet provides ample space for the three distinct areas – dining, grilling and fireplace. Can lights, drop lights, carriage lights, low-voltage lighting and even a chandelier make the space look spectacular at night.
The fireplace and kitchen have different types of stone that are complementary.
The roof structure was tied into the home and the garage, replacing the existing breezeway.
A white veneer stone was used with a blue/gray flagstone for the hearth and mantle. A direct vent gas log fireplace insert doesn’t require a chimney.
The ceiling is a stained tongue & groove pine. Flooring includes a combination of travertine and a stamped concrete overlay.
I have a lot of experience with construction and renovations, so some contractors find me annoying at best. My outdoor living project was larger than I was able to take on as it entailed adding an outdoor living area, kitchen, dining room, and bathroom with a fireplace and fire pit. It’s built onto an existing structure with a tile roof in a seamless manner. The completed project is amazing, and was featured in the Houzz project of the month for December 2013. It was a very large project so it took a long time to complete, however the process was absolutely painless. In my previous experiences, I have always had issues with miscommunications and added costs, among other things. My experience with Texas Custom Patios included NONE of these issues. The finished project far exceeded my expectations. The workmanship was superior, and the quality of the products is top of the line. I truly highly recommend them.
