Considering a Small Backyard Covered Patio?

To start we’ll go to a project (one of my favorites to show) because the Shrivers were dead-set on having us build an attached-structure to the house believing it was the solution to a covered patio for a small landscape. I recommended a detached-structure (gazebo for small patio) to make sure enough light was part of the new outdoor living area encouraging them to consider a detached structure with a fireplace wall for privacy on the border of the fence. For code, it had to be 5 feet away from the fence, but it allowed us to push out while maximizing space in this small area.

We also added other features – the golf green along the side yard, the barbeque & the bar making a dual destination with the dining table. The breezeway pergola feels like an attached structure while allowing the light to seemingly enlarge the structure.

Small & Cozy

When talking about small patio covers, you can’t get smaller than our second example of a covered patio in the courtyard. That’s the beauty of these patio covers – they provide a cool aesthetic with function and in this case the ability to barbecue in all weather. Nice use of space Torres family. We took the original backdoor covered space and combined it with the barbeque a-frame covered structure. We put built-in benches around the firepit a built-in-post-bar as another destination and a wrap-around bench seat in the corner. This is a great little idea for a small backyard-covered structure.

You’ll love this next example of a very small backyard kitchen/bar patio with an attached covered structure. We took there extremely small-covered space that came with the built home and built a covered patio with a fireplace small area wall for privacy. It became the TV & Entertaining spot. Then we added a bump out – a Gable style structure (gazebo for small landscape) with barbeque Kitchen-Bar island. This bar has spots for 7-8 seats. I can’t understate the importance of adding a bar to a small space. An outdoor bar, even in a small space is a wonderful destination as you can see here and the Brehm’s thought so too!
