This yard was an empty slate and had plenty of room to create the homeowner’s vision. TCP added a screened porch, covered patio and outdoor kitchen.
As you can see, there is no shade on the back of this home with a large backyard.
A screened porch was added so the family could have a year round outdoor space. The screens are sun and bug blocking. Access to this space from inside was created with the addition of a door that replaced windows.
A custom built gas starting wood fireplace is the focal point of the screened porch. Bromic heaters were also installed to keep the space nice and warm on chilly days and nights.
TCP installed a retractable screen and door between the screened area and covered patio portion that has the outdoor kitchen and dining.
With the screens up, the space opens up to the outdoor kitchen and dining area.
This part of the new space is dedicated to dining. The flooring throughout is a Versailles pattern travertine from QDI. All of the ceiling is American Nut Brown pre-stained tongue and groove by Woodtone.
The outdoor kitchen is equipped with RCS appliances – grill, fridge, doors and drawers. The long counter area and bar top that wraps around the space has granite. The stone used throughout is Austin Cream and Austin Chop White from Republic Stone.
We added an additional 1330 SF for the homeowner to Live it Out. Three distinct areas – screened porch, kitchen area and an open air patio. The family now has the backyard they desired .
We worked with Mark, who came to us with plans and fully explained the costs, materials, timeline, and talked about the construction methods. The project was well organized, with a new crew arriving once each stage of construction was completed. I kept a photo record of it, which was fun and friends are wowed by the timeline. I completely recommend Texas Custom Patios.
