We are in the early stages of planing a remodel to an existing outdoor entertainment area. The existing area had the necessary features. However, it was outdated and smaller than the owners would like.
The new program includes a Dining area, a Fire pit area, and a Barbecue area. Each of these areas are dedicated functional areas but are large enough to easily accommodate extra guests.
The Dining and Fire pit areas area covered by a solid roof. There will be an opening in the center of the ceiling of each that will act like a skylight. This opening will have a lattice cover to control the sun light. The Barbecue area will have a lattice type roof. Peninsula counter seating will be available at each end. A ceiling mounted TV will also be included in the Dining area.
The program also includes a stand alone 300 square foot gym (not shown on floor plan below).
