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.
Ryan, our project manager, was both attentive and patient with every request, question, and concern that we raised at any point throughout the duration of the project. He was always a phone call or text away, responding every time in an impressively timely manner. He listened to and accommodated our requests, but he also offered suggestions to broaden our imaginations as to what we could create with simple adjustments to our design.
