Schloegel Design Remodel, Kansas City, Missouri
The clients live on a beautiful ranch with an existing stone and wood trellis outdoor kitchen area. They wanted to expand upon the kitchen and replace the kidney shaped pool. The new design needed shade areas, a gathering and entertainment space, cooking stations, and a pool that would not detract from the pond. The new two-story porch with a low covered area became the concept. It features a truss gable design with large tapered columns. Eight-foot tall chandeliers and gas lantern sconces help illuminate the space. A two-sided fireplace, with one side for seating and gathering and the other for cooking, a restaurant grill insert, and a whole hog pit were included as well.
