This large outdoor entertainment space was exactly what the homeowner desired to complement their new swimming pool. This covered patio completes the back yard with plenty of room for grilling or for just hanging out after a dip in the pool.
This home was a blank slate – the homeowner had a pool installed and wanted a large outdoor entertaining space to go with it. The original patio cover had a 20 foot high ceiling and did not provide coverage from the elements.
In building this space, we added a room to the second floor to create part of the ceiling for the patio cover. We extended the roof line out and then along the side of the home to create this space that is 945 square feet.
This space has it all – the modern fireplace is the centerpiece of the living room. It is faced with the same tile as the summer kitchen and provides a texture contrast to the stucco walls around it. There is a bathroom and storage closet built at the end of the covered space.
We built in a half bath for use while out at the pool or for big parties.
This covered area has all the right looks… the flooring is 1″ thick travertine pavers in light ivory that continues throughout the pool decking to give the space one continuous look. Roll down shades have been installed to filter out the strong sun that shines in during the afternoon.
This large outdoor kitchen has a 12′ long section for cooking that includes a double side burner and RCS Pro Series grill. The Firemagic vent hood above creates a focal point. The back splash for the cooking area is a linen texture tile for easy clean up. The bar area across from the grill is 8′ long and has a sink, fridge and storage. It is the perfect spot to belly up to for dinner or for that evening refreshment.
What more can be said? This outdoor living room and kitchen is the perfect place to spend time in.
Texas Custom Patios was a pleasure to work with from first call to final detail on our patio cover and flooring. Everyone we worked with — office personnel on scheduling, crews on fast and quality work, and Steven helping with design ideas and scheduling and issue resolution — were all what contracting should be. We had been looking at our odd roofline, chimney location and numerous angles for over 10 years and received numerous quotes and estimates that just didn’t work or the contractors flatly said they couldn’t do what we were looking for . . . until Steven and TCP arrived and did exactly what we wanted (and more) on time, on budget, no hassle. We love our new space and receive many compliments on the look and functionality of the space and design. We would love to have TCP and Steven do another project for us and we recommend them to anyone.
