The Smith family was looking to expand their patio space and create an inviting outdoor living area to enjoy with friends and family. They asked for a place where they could sit during the hot summer but also enjoy during a cool fall evening.
Shade and a fireplace were the big items that needed to be integrated. Expanding the concrete almost doubled the square footage we had to work with. We introduced a pergola that covered a little more than half the patio allowing for an ample amount of area to be usable during the hot summers. Placing the custom stone fireplace at the end helps draw your eyes through the patio and creates a gathering space to huddle up next to on the chilly evenings.
