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 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!
