Rule #284: “There’s always something beautiful outside.”
We recently extended our back patio and had an outdoor kitchen and fireplace installed! It’s been a dream of ours since we built our house in 2016. Our dreams finally came true thanks to Matt’s Custom Decks! We love this new space that has basically become our number one hangout spot in the house. Now that Covid is here, it’s been a much-welcomed change!
This was our patio before the extension. We honestly can’t believe this is what our backyard looked like. It looks so different now!
I’m going to do a (long) series of photos detailing the building process, so if you want to skip down to the bottom, be my scrolling guest!
We purchased the outdoor kitchen appliances from BBQGuys. We’re very impressed with the quality and durability! I think my favorite buy from them is the double trash can that rolls out so you can access both recycling and trash. Go green, yo!
We were very impressed with the way Matt’s was able to seamlessly merge the existing patio into the new with the outdoor kitchen flowing between them. They’re miracle workers.
One major perk was when the granite company made this custom piece to cover the outdoor sink. It keeps it so nicely protected and looks pretty, too! When we’re using the sink, I’ll place napkins and silverware on the granite piece for a cute serving area.
Jon Boy had to go solo to pick out the granite because of Covid. He was so nervous, but I think he did a great job!
Jon picked this Blaze grill and is very happy so far! It’s definitely different than cooking on a Weber, but he’s already enjoying not messing with propane.
We want to spread the great word about Matt’s Custom Decks and give them major props for helping to make our dreams become reality! We’ve always loved being outside and enjoying the pretty Houston weather we’ve been having lately. Now, we can enjoy even more time outside (and Jon can take over more Dinner Duties thanks to the outdoor kitchen). Once we get our furniture and some decor situated, I’ll post about that, too. Cheers to finding beauty outside especially during tough times like these!
