Our patio area was really tight 108sqf. Room for the island, patio set and nothing else. 
We replaced it with a 352sqf. 

We're planning to extend the roof over when material cost are more realistic. Time being we opted for cantilevered umbrellas,one 12x12 and one 9x12. The 9x12 will cover the cookers

We have a corner lot so I added a small privacy fence to hide my collection of stuff I now have room for.

I hope to get the inground umbrella stand cemented in before my next battle then will continue next year.



Meanwhile it's an awesome spot

    That is a heckofa spot for sure.  I envision many adult beverages being consumed there while meat gently smokes away.

    Way to plan it out and then incrementally execute.  Great setting.

    Looks great, big improvement.  I need to get rid of the mud pit in the back of my house by putting bricks or something in. 

    Were window prices high when they built your house?

    Cool! I wish I had that THICK carpet of sod! But I'm in that camp who traded sunshine for my very DENSE shade! Can't have both, no matter what some lawn services say they can deliver with $$$ of fertilizer!

    It's been awhile but now we're ready to go forward with covering the patio. Will follow the existing roof line and extend the gable to tie into the house. Signed a contractor to build and my nephew, a licensed electrician to wire it all up, and are pumped



    Mrs.C said the space station will be able to see it with all the led lights I bought.






    Are you planning on joining the roofs on the right side of the patio roof, which will create a valley? Or are you leaving a gap there, or finishing above that gutter (or below the other roof) for drainage of rain and snow?

    Ah okay, so they will create a small pitch overtop to take out that dead valley.  Good idea.

    Looking good. How does it look on that valley created on the right side, where it intersects your existing roof?

    If I was having that done here, that would be what it would look like after a month of work.  I would probably have a better chance of finding bigfoot than a dependable contractor.

     I haven't been able to get a good vantage point for a picture of the right, to much stuff cluttering the way. But what I've seen looks good. Eventually I'll get a picture

    Love it. Definitely can't let my wife see it, for obvious reason, lol
    If you don't mind me wondering, may be it's the camera angle/perspective or my glasses, the two posts look small relative to the structure. Also, can't tell if they are resting on concrete footing or buried into the soil.
