285th Hybrid Patio Cover

285th Hybrid Patio Cover

As far as Patio Covers go, this was one of the more unique and different cover designs we’ve done compared to what we normally construct. This 407 SF T&G Hybrid cover was not only large, but it was built with a lot of care and attention to detail. From the ground up, there was a lot of work to be done here. This homeowner wanted more flat space for entertaining and creating a cohesive outdoor space. Ultimately this led to us pouring just over 875 SF of concrete flatwork, which had a walkway for them to bring their bikes out of the shed and ride them out from the back. It also gave them space for a hot tub, and hand-built planter boxes we built them to allow for accessible gardening.

As for the details of the cover itself, there were a ton of custom features that went into the cover itself. For starters, all of the posts and beams were carefully burned using the Japanese method of Shou-Sugi-Ban, to create a beautiful striped pattern throughout the woodgrain. This was done to create a harsher contrast, to truly expose the beauty of the woodgrain once it was stained. After the burning and staining was completed, we assembled the cover and got everything ready for the electrician. This cover had custom wired outlets in each post to allow for christmas lights, a leaf blower, or anything else they may need them for. In addition, this cover had a fan/light combo to keep the air moving when it’s warm, and to provide lighting when it starts to get late. Another way this cover gets lighting, is from the 4 skylights installed in the roof. This opened things up and made the cover feel like a part of the home. All in all, this project was very successful because it turned out beautiful, and was exactly what the client wanted.
