Many times adding on a combination outdoor living area that consists of a few well planned outdoor structures can equal the same enjoyment as adding a few room additions to your home. Having multiple living and entertaining areas to work with will increase the time you spend outdoors and increase the degree of function your backyard provides.
We recently completed a project in Dublin, Ohio that included a custom screen porch addition and an extension of an existing hardscape patio. The area we added to the patio enables the space to function as two separate outdoor living areas. From the screened porch we also added a beautiful landing with a unique angled stairway that leads down into the patio. The increase in the size of the patio enables the homeowners to have two distinct areas for dining and entertaining and there is even ample enough space to comfortably facilitate two outdoor dining tables with chairs. Did someone say the perfect space for an outdoor dinner party this summer? Watch the video of the completed project and see the ultimate outdoor living space come to life.
The screened porch has an open gable roof design that ties into the existing home perfectly. The interior of the screen porch was built using rustic, aromatic cedar. The ceiling boasts cedar exposed rafters, large 12 x 12 roof columns and elegant transoms over the windows that are usually only seen in interior building. We also included a 24 inch knee wall made of tongue and groove cedar. The king truss is visually interesting and also serves weight function requirements due to the 2nd story cantilever.
The extension on the patio included increasing the radius of the area, and replacement of patio materials. We used Unilock Beacon Hill flagstone pavers with a soldier course edge and tied in a gorgeous ribbon in complimentary hues. We also extended the existing hardscape retaining wall and built a bar ledge that the customer had stained to match the cedar used on the screen porch interior.
