Outdoor Living Oasis

With the goal of creating a larger and more functional outdoor environment, custom made for year-round outdoor living and entertaining, this oasis was created. By substantially raising the roof, we more than doubled the usable patio space near the home, creating a warm and luxurious outdoor living space with a TV and fireplace, and a one-of-a-kind seated outdoor kitchen, that sits just underneath a custom-made 8’ x 10’ lit copper awning. The entire area is finished 16” x 24” Ankara Travertine on the floor, a Mexican Noce fireplace surround, cedar herringbone soffit, an infrared heater, canvas wind drapery, and a custom woven copper soffit vault.

This brick is known as "Old Chicago", and is best known for it's wide disparity in color. This is antique brick (as it has been used before, ostensibly on a building in Chicago).. The brick does have a multitude of color groups is gets sorted into , my only advice is to sort carefully. Good luck --DRG

Can you give me an idea of what type of structure we are working with, such as interior or exterior, 8 ft ceiling or 12 ft, plaster or wood, paint grade or stain grade? Pictures would help too. Thanks --DRG

This is a little challenging to quote a price, as there are significant differences based on wood species and the trim finishes of the wood. For nicer high-end cabinets (Alder, Walnut, etc), you can generally figure that each 4' section (which is close to what is shown), is going to be about $180 to $300 per vertical foot. For example, a 9' tall built-in, that is 4' wide would be (using $200 per vertical foot) about $1,800. I hope this helps. This would be for the cabinets only, and not much in the way of sheetrock, wall framing, electrical, etc.

Rynecarney, here are a few other pictures, which are of the hood and soffit area, as well as the entire project. This was a "top 10" for us as a company; a truly extreme makeover. Enjoy. --DRG

This brick is known as "Old Chicago", as it is re-purposed brick from buildings in Chicago, hence the widely varying coloration. You should be able to source it through almost any large brick supplier. Be cautious that given the nature of the brick, it has many different tones and colors, depending on the size of the building and number of pallets that came from it. Although they try to keep the pallets together, inevitably they become separated over time. This was an early 80's home, and it took quite a monumental task of hand sorting over 100,000 bricks to get the 50,000 we needed that matched. If you are creating something new, you should be okay. Best of Luck - DRG
