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 is 6" x 1" rough sawn cedar plank. The look is great and the clients really like it. If you on plan on doing something of this nature, please mind the season and the moisture content of the wood, as some drying (and shrinking) should be expected. Good Luck --DRG

This was a remodeling project and we did not build the home, so I do not know exactly. From the county records, the house is listed at 7,200 sq ft, the pool at 500 sq ft, and the lot is roughly shown as .85 acres. I hope this helps. --DRG

I could not agree more. This is a specialty-cut (16" x 24") Ankara Travertine. You can see the specifications at http://www.arizonatile.com/ANKARA-P729C132.aspx. As this is natural stone, it can vary in shades, so I recommend getting sample pieces. Best of luck. -- DRG

Love the feel of this space. How did you raise the roof? Is it possible without tearing down?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Dallas Renovation Group
Hello Jayna. We actually constructed a new roof over the old, then removed the old. I am attaching a few "in process" pictures that might help. The short answer is that yes, raising the roof without tearing down is very possible, and can be a good investment with the new added square footage. I hope this helps. --DRG

i like the bricks what are they
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Dallas Renovation Group
This home brick is "old chicago", which are actually re-used bricks from buildings in the Windy City. They are widely available and come in a large variety of colors and shades. If you use them, you need to really look over the pallets good, as there are significant variations, even inside of pre-sorted lots. On this particular project and home addition, we sorted well over 100,000 bricks to get the 55,000 we needed to match the original brick on the home. Here are a couple of other pictures from the entire remodel. Good luck.

What stain is on the cedar? Color looks less orangey than typical cedar

Amy, This is just stained with "clear" with no added coloring. I think the photograph and lighting gives it a look of coloration. Once you apply the clear, it does darken the native cedar a bit. -DRG

what is the depth of the patio from the house to the yard?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Dallas Renovation Group
Technically the "yard" is about 30 feet away, but I think you mean the width of this covered porch area depicted. It is just over 13' in width from the windows to the edge near the column
