The homeowner was struggling to find a solution to create an outdoor living area because of the existing roof lines and drainage issues that existed. The space is outfitted with a premium Bose wireless sound system. Brick arches and flagstone flooring add to the beauty of the space.
The original covered area on the back of the home was not big enough to provide the space the homeowner wanted or needed.
We were able to solve the drainage and roofing problem by designing a slightly pitched roof that used a TPO waterproof barrier and custom crown molding trimmed veneer.
The new outdoor space was built off both the home and the garage. This space created a great outdoor area for entertaining.
The client had a freestanding fireplace on the patio already that was removed and a new one was custom built into the design of the outdoor living space. The fireplace has a natural gas starter and a travertine cap with a reclaimed hemlock wood mantle. This feature truly helps create the living room atmosphere that the homeowner was going for.
With the high ceiling, we were able to incorporate brick arches and coffered ceilings to provide protection from the elements and to contribute to the classic Southern plantation formal look of the home.
With arched openings and coffered ceiling the patio cover is a great space for relaxing and watching the big game.
The homeowner does a lot of entertaining and loves being able to expand to the outdoors – even on chilly nights.
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.
