Backing up to a lovely green space and Buffalo Bayou, this home only had a paver patio that was in disrepair, and no shade to enjoy the beautiful views. A new gable roof patio cover provides ample shade, while an outdoor fireplace, outdoor kitchen, and Travertine tile floor turn this area into a spectacular outdoor living room.
The gable roof allows for this soaring vaulted ceiling that includes tongue & groove pine and cedar beam accents.
The outdoor fireplace is faced with multi-color flagstone and has a stout hemlock mantle. The fireplace burns real wood and has a gas starter.
The dry-stack stone is topped with granite counters. The backsplash is a glass tile. The kitchen has a 30″ grill, refrigerator and sink, plus extra storage space.
The flooring complements the different stones used on the fireplace and kitchen. The Travertine is laid in a Versailles pattern.
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.
