After several years and more than 7 projects in this home, our homeowners hired us to create a new patio kitchen and entertaining area. The huge cedar timbers and open framing created the effect of a room outdoors for this wonderful space. The stone fireplace with cedar log mantle not only provide warmth on cooler days, but help to block wind and sun in the middle of summer. Concrete countertops provide a durable yet friendly work surface, and the led lighting hidden in the framing above creates the perfect nighttime mood. Here you can see how the patio looked before we worked it over.
