With the existing pool already dominating the backyard, the design challenge was to create space to enjoy a fireplace, outdoor kitchen and dining under a roof structure.
The L-shaped layout of the project helped to accommodate all of the desires of our homeowner. There was also an effort to create a “Texas Hill Country” look while designing and building the project to look like it belongs on the home.
The wood-burning fireplace and the kitchen/columns used different, but complimentary stone. The hearth and column caps were finished in flagstone, while the kitchen counters are granite. The beams and columns were finished with a rough-cut Western Red Cedar and the ceiling was finished with tongue & groove pine. The flooring is a stamped concrete overlay in a Roman Slate pattern.
A stucco wall was built behind the grill for privacy with an arched opening to provide venting for the grill.
Texas Custom Patios were a great pleasure to work with on our outdoor addition. They listened intently to what we wanted to create, and gave expert advise on how to make it work. The workers were extremely professional and very clean. The workmanship was superior and the quality of products used was the best. Almost a year after completion they are still in contact and making sure we are still pleased with their work. I could not imagine not using them for a project.
