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.
We had very high expectations when Texas Custom Patios began construction on our back patio space. Because our roofline has a steep pitch and the odd location of our chimney, we were concerned about whether the addition would flow seamlessly with the rest of the roofline. Steven and his crews far exceeded our expectations. Professional and attentive to our concerns, Texas Custom Patios created the outdoor space we’ve always wanted – only better.
