I have always always always wanted a part of my outdoor space to be covered – for rainy nights to still enjoy being outside, for barbecuing when it’s pouring, or for times to get out of the bright sunshine. Alas and alack, here in Bedford, I do not have that in place and might consider it except like everything else in Westchester County, it requires getting a permit and for this particular vision, quite a few $$$$$.
I have a perfect place for such an outdoor covered space, right off the french doors of the breakfast room (I’d go outside and take a photo but I’d be lost in a snow drift, so take my word for it).
This is what I envision………..droooooooooooooollllllllllllllllllll
Simple. Gorgeous ceiling. Not huge. BBQ covered. Easy access back inside. Outdoor Fireplace. The ONLY thing I’d eliminate is the outdoor TV. I don’t see the need for a TV outside, unless you live where it’s warm all year long, then maybe.
The comment section in this post from Houzz, someone asked what was protruding from the curved fascias?
Oh my, clever clever, they are motorized screens from Phantom. They look sensational but I wonder if in real-time application kids and dogs go right through them or lose their traction etc. I’d like to give it a try, in my next house.
I’d take any one of these patios….
Double yes please
Here’s another one with the retractable phantom screens
Now, reality, out in the snow, to run to Target and the grocery store. Oh snap.
