Example of a mid-sized mountain style backyard tile patio kitchen design in Houston with a gazebo

Project of the Month: September 2017

Rustic Patio, Houston

This freestanding covered patio with an outdoor kitchen and fireplace is the perfect retreat! Just a few steps away from the home, this covered patio is about 500 square feet. The homeowner had an existing structure they wanted replaced. This new one has a custom built wood burning fireplace with an outdoor kitchen and is a great area for entertaining. The flooring is a travertine tile in a Versailles pattern over a concrete patio. The outdoor kitchen has an L-shaped counter with plenty of space for prepping and serving meals as well as space for dining. The fascia is stone and the countertops are granite. The wood-burning fireplace is constructed of the same stone and has a ledgestone hearth and cedar mantle. What a perfect place to cozy up and enjoy a cool evening outside. The structure has cedar columns and beams. The vaulted ceiling is stained tongue and groove and really gives the space a very open feel. Special details include the cedar braces under the bar top counter, carriage lights on the columns and directional lights along the sides of the ceiling. Click Photography

    I realize its about 500sqft. Is that 20x24? Also what did they use to span the 24'? Lvl? And also what they use to not have ceiling joists at all? Thanks

    I'm curious about the dimensions, too. It looks like about 16x20 just eyeballing it, but that's only 320 sf. Maybe they counted the stone patio.
