Creating an outdoor space that is functional year round is a great way to feel like you’ve gained square footage in your home. This Ogden covered patio was built to extend outdoor entertaining year round for a football loving family. Whether it’s a Saturday Utes game or a Sunday Dolphins game, football season requires plenty of space for game time shenanigans. By creating a covered patio with a beautiful outdoor fireplace, these homeowners can enjoy the game, outside, in any weather with all of their friends and family.
Ogden Covered Patio from the Ground Up
Start with a Belgard paver patio created with Holland stone in Victorian. The gorgeous shades of gray, brown, and burnt amber provide a rustic feel that blends well with any landscape and home exterior.
Add a stunning gas outdoor fireplace, wrapped in a natural-looking Harristone veneer, featuring a blonde sandstone hearth and mantle, to provide warmth, privacy, and a coveted location for the big screen television, and you have yourself a lovely outdoor entertaining space.
Extend that fireplace in both directions, and add granite to create the perfect place to serve snacks while gaining added privacy and coziness.
Raise the Roof
With so much going on, what more could a homeowner want? How about a patio roof for shade, rain protection, and so much more! This gabled roof pitch matches perfectly to the home’s original roof line – making it look original to the home. Not only does it create a dry, shady space for outdoor entertaining in any weather, but it also allows for the functional addition of accessories. Recessed lighting for night games, a ceiling fan for added air flow, and crown molding and knotty pine tongue and groove for a designer touch, provides all the comforts of indoor living, but outdoors.
The Finishing Touches
The 900-square-foot covered patio is the central football party space, but we also continued the Belgard hardscape with a paver sidewalk to the side gate for continuity and beauty. The four masculine white posts are supporting the patio roof and feature matching Harristone natural stone bases to mirror the outdoor fireplace adding a modern rustic feeling.
