This freestanding covered patio with an outdoor kitchen and fireplace is the perfect retreat from the constraints of the house. The homeowner had an existing structure located in their back yard that we demolished and built them this beautiful new space.
Just a few steps from the home, this freestanding patio cover is right at 500 square feet. It is the perfect place to get away and enjoy the backyard.
The outdoor kitchen has a bar top area for dining outside. Notice the special details of the cedar braces under the granite counter top.
The kitchen is L-shaped with a grill, fridge, storage and plenty of counter space for preparing and serving meals.
The flooring is a travertine tile in a Versailles pattern.
The wood-burning fireplace is custom built with a large ledgestone hearth and cedar mantle. The stone fascia is the same as what is on the kitchen.
The vaulted ceiling is a stained tongue and groove with cedar beams. The columns are also stained cedar with stone bases. The gabled roof gives the space a very open feel.
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.
