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 did an amazing job on our covered patio, outdoor kitchen, and outdoor living area. Steven listened to the things we were looking for, and was able to come up with original design ideas that included moving our outdoor garage-addition staircase and blending in an unusual roofline with a new gable style roof. The results were exactly what we were looking for. The construction process was professional, on-time, and on-budget. All of the crews were professional and the work they did exceeded our expectations. We are very happy with the results and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to add an outdoor living area to their home.
