Check out this outdoor living addition we did for the Davenport family in Centerville, Ohio. The family recently moved to Centerville from Texas and really missed the their outdoor living space back home. If you know much about Texas, their outdoor living spaces and outdoor kitchens are sometimes nicer than their indoor ones.
They already had an existing concrete patio and wanted to build off of that. A spot to grill out and a fireplace was very important so we came up with the design below:
The project turned out amazing and we we’re able to complete the project in time for the Davenports to host the neighborhood 4th of July party.
The outdoor fireplace
We constructed the outdoor fireplace similar to the Unilock pre-made fireplaces. We prefer to build our own unique design if at all possible. This also helped cut down on cost and in our opinion our customer received a better fireplace. The Unilock fireplaces are pre-built in Chicago at the same place that we build our fireplaces that hang on the wall. They are then shipped around to several different destinations, so a large portion of the expense is transportation. We we’re able to use the Unilock fireplace as inspiration and come up with our own design. We and our customer couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out.
The custom cedar pergola
We built a custom cedar pergola with the ceiling beams interlocking so that it had a custom feel and would outlast the Ohio elements.
The paver patio
The patio was built using Unilock Brussels Block pavers and Brussels Block Dimensional for the steps, fireplace, and outdoor grill island.
