Our homeowner wanted two distinct areas: a shady hangout under the patio cover, featuring a kitchen & bar; and an open-air fire pit with built-in seating.
Like all Texas Custom Patios projects, we designed the patio cover to look original to the home – matching shingles, an attractive roof pitch, matching brick, hardieplank soffit and fascia, etc.
The outdoor kitchen has a privacy wall, vented above the grill. The kitchen includes a grill, side burner, refrigerator, sink, and plenty of storage…lots of doors and drawers.
The fire pit has firebrick interior, brick exterior, and a flagstone cap. There is a gas starter for the wood-burning pit. The seat wall has matching finishes and low-voltage lighting.
A late addition to the project was a gorgeous entry into the backyard that gives a hint of the great outdoor living room around the corner.
The homeowner chose fantastic light fixtures for both the interior and exterior of the patio cover. The whole stamped concrete patio is surrounded by colorful landscaping.
In the past, we have had some problems with contractors. What they say and what they do are two different things. Not so with Texas Custom Patios. We knew what was going to happen, and when, and just as advertised, it happened. In three weeks, we had a 300 square foot addition to our house. We now have an outdoor media room and outdoor dining room and we LOVE IT.
