Project Spotlight: Backyard Outdoor Space
OUTDOOR SPACE REMODEL
These homeowners desired a rear covered porch that helped transition between their home and their outdoor pool.
The results of their outdoor transformation includes several sitting areas, a covered outdoor kitchen, additional shading space and a grilling porch off their indoor kitchen.
HERE’S A SNAPSHOT OF THEIR REMODEL:
Several areas were created in this space: a shaded sitting area, an elaborate entry way to their backyard pool, and an outdoor, covered kitchen area with both a covered and an exposed bar on each side of it.
This sitting area looks out on the backyard while giving friends and family a break from the afternoon sun.
A beautiful cathedral ceiling walkway with natural wood, and craftsman style columns with masonry bases, add additional warmth and color cohesion.
The outdoor kitchen has a built-in grill, covered bar, and a fully functioning sink. The sink drains to the sewer, allowing the owners to drain their saline pool directly into the sink without running a hose into the home.
A second sitting area is located right beyond the basement doors, for a more sheltered space with a cooling fan, evening lights, and music speakers built-in.
The pool area and covered porch were integrated by matching the pool coping on the patio extension: the brick boarder and slate flooring go throughout.
A matching metal-roofed overhang was created above the windows on the upper deck to give their indoor kitchen space more shade at the height of the day.
Lastly, a recessed grilling porch with sitting area was created on the second level outside the kitchen door, for easy grilling from the indoor kitchen as well.

Isn’t it true that when guests arrive they all seem to gravitate in the kitchen? Kids return home from school, grandchildren come to visit, the neighbors drop in… and everyone ends up wedged between the sink and the fridge. Very few cooks enjoy being confined in a tight space to prepare a meal when company…
