Back Porch & Backyard of Reynold's Residence @ GregMix.com

French doors were placed at the rear of Great Room to allow access to the Back Porch and skylights were placed in the roof of the Back Porch to bring in more daylight. An outdoor stone fireplace was added in one corner of the back porch. During construction the owners decided to eliminate the screens and open the Back Porch up to extend the blue stone flooring out onto a large patio in order to create a large outdoor living space. The patio is curved along the back edge with a low stone wall which separates it from a planting bed with a curved walkway made from chips of blue slate. See gregmix.com

Building an outdoor living room - Love the stone and cedar, our home is similar. Did you go with natural or gas fireplace? How do you find the built in grill? Would you change anything after you have used it?

I was the architect for this home. The homeowner went with gas for the fireplace and the outdoor grill. This being the second home this client has done with us I know they are still quiet happy with the house and the grill..

Unfortunately the owner and the builder pick that out and its been four years so i do not have the exact name or mfg. We use real cedar shakes. what I can tell you is the stain is a transparent weathered grey.

Dear Shaynee;

The owner used a rare aged Georgia Stone Mountain Blue Stone that she and her mason hunted down. I have lost touch with her, at least she has not been returning messages. I fear she may be having trouble with her illnesses. Perhaps I'll try calling her again tomorrow.

I do not know and I have lost contact with the home owner. I believe she she may be out of touch due to her illness.

The builder tells me it was basic "Orchard Granite". Her mason found it for her.
