Cozy Backyard

In this project, a large gable roofed patio cover, double-sided fireplace, and glass tiled spa transforms a small backyard into a cozy retreat for a couple who love to entertain. Used brick, colorful tile, and stained wood add warmth to the large patio and echo the French country design palette from indoors. The wide gable roof keeps the view open from the house towards the golf course and the large trees surrounding the property. Space is a premium, so elements are carefully laid out to create generous feeling entertaining spaces, as well as intimate areas for relaxing.
