The homeowner wanted to build an outdoor living room that blended with the neighborhood’s strict guidelines per Historic District requirements in the Historic Heights area of Houston. It had to be designed and built to look original to the home.
The vaulted ceiling is painted tongue & groove with built out beams. This design continued the original style of the home to meet the specifications of the Historic District.
We installed a grey composite deck that was tied into the existing foundation and added white accent trim and railing.
The fireplace was built taking into consideration existing design with a two tier format to be able to add in stone with cohesive trim carpentry to be able to “close off” the television when not in use.
Time to get cozy in front of the fireplace with great book or a group of friends to watch a game… one would never believe they are in the middle of a big city.
An additional stone firepit and travertine pad was installed to create additional outdoor living space just a few steps from the covered patio.
Here is the home before we came in and worked our magic.
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.
