This home had a small covered patio and the homeowner wanted to create a new space that included an outdoor kitchen and living room complete with a fireplace that would complement the new pool they were having built.
This home had a large backyard with plenty of space to add a new outdoor living room. The homeowner was adding a pool and outdoor living space at the same time. We were able to design an outdoor kitchen and living area to complement the new pool they were having built.
As you can see from the before picture, we did some demo work to remove an existing patio, planters and a pond. The new space consists of 900 SF of patio area . There is 650 SF of covered space that consists of a larger living area attached to the home with a breezeway as well as a smaller covered area for the outdoor kitchen.
This area was the original patio cover that was turned into the new outdoor dining room. The kitchen is located right outside the door for easy access.
The kitchen is 12 linear feet with a granite counter and back splash. The brick fascia matches the home. There is a 42″ RCS grill as well as a fridge and ice maker. The custom vent hood is cast stone and has a Vent-a-hood liner.
The flooring is all done in a Versailles pattern travertine. The ceiling is all a painted tongue and groove with beautiful reclaimed beams.
This living space was constructed with brick columns and arches to match the home. The fireplace is is a custom masonry wood burning one with a cast stone mantle and surround. The knee walls built along the side of the fireplace also have cast stone benches on them. The vaulted ceiling really opens up the living space.
What a nice area the homeowner now has to enjoy their back yard.
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!
