Back Porch Transformation | 2022/2023
PLANNING THE PERFECT PERGOLA
To start the planning process, we met with a designer to workout materials and design choices, and consulted with a structural engineer to see if we wanted to tie this renovation into the existing home (i.e. extending the roof, like in this project). We also kept an eye out on material costs, (because we understand how expensive lumber can be!), and decided to add a ceiling fan to beat the Texas heat. We also added power and screens to keep the pesky mosquitos and other bugs out!
GETTING THE DETAILS RIGHT
The client wanted this to feel like an extension of the house. By extending the roof line, matching the colors of the existing house, adding electrical, and custom barn doors, we were able to make this space seem like another room of the house. This approach made it seem like we added square footage to the home!
The design was revised to add slats on the right side of the structure because the city required the area to remain open without a roof. They wanted the amount of sunshine and rain to stay consistent with how it was before the project.
The sliding barn-style doors were custom-built, and were selected to save space on the deck and keep bugs out.
A HAPPY HOMEOWNER
“This was the best remodel experience I’ve ever had. They rebuilt my deck and turned it into a space that I’m finally excited to use. Communication was frequent and professional. They are above board on EVERYTHING, timely, responsible, ethical, accountable, high quality and more. Everything you want from a contractor but never thought you could have. I look forward to working with them again on future projects!”BOOK A FREE CONSULTATION
