Featured Project 2014

Rob Roy Patio and Outdoor Kitchen

by Jake / November 17, 2014

IMG_5526_FotorAfter completing pool construction several years ago, these home owners wanted to extend the functionality of their existing limestone pool deck by adding additional lounging space and increasing the outdoor living area.

Built into a hillside in bee caves Texas, we used natural stone materials locally sourced to extend the existing outdoor pool patio and build a custom outdoor kitchen.

The patio includes an 18 foot built in stone bench designed for lounging by the pool and sun bathing. The kitchen features custom pored concrete countertops, a “big green egg” grill, 32 inch cooktop, and a custom cedar pergola for shade.

See the progress of this project on our blog!
