This will be more basic than that lol. I guess it'd be more like an open lean to.


General question, for a "shed" style roof, what is the minimum slope rating you can have on it? Is a 2:12 too shallow?

re: Outdoor Covered Patio/Kitchen
Any chance you could post a pic of the roofline and how it is tied in? Looking to do the same and we have a similar roofline to y’all. I’m curious to see how the tie-in looks. TIA!

Just to add something to this but if it’s a screened in patio, come up with a good design for drainage. The people we bought our house from screened in the carport and put 3/4” ports every so often around the brick. That is a horrible design and I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s a PITA to clean and get the water out properly

That is super nice. The prices are scaring the crap out of me, I was hoping to do mine for $25K or so (minimal concrete addition, tie-in to roof, and water gas and electrical mostly done). Better save up a few more pennies. Wonder if one time of year is better than another to get good pricing?

I am getting one to tie into my roof as an extension of the already large covered porch while doing a pool and decking with the flooring and tile already being covered by the pool company. 15X30 addition with all of the same stuff as mentioned in here and its right about $50K for just the addition.

re: Outdoor Covered Patio/Kitchen
A patio can definitely be done for that amount, IF it’s just a covered patio. First, it depends on the size of the addition and how they have to tie it into the house. Next of course, are the selections you decide to make. In our project that is pictured, the fireplace alone was a little over $7k. If you’re not adding an outdoor kitchen, all the equipment pictured was another $7.5k from BBQ Guys. What you choose for flooring is also another money item. Travertine isn’t cheap, but we were lucky in that our contractor gave us an EXCELLENT price. The tongue n groove ceilings were also more expensive, than if we would have gone with painted Hardie Plank siding. My husband also wanted a separate electrical panel for the entire addition, even though our main panel had exactly enough room. He explained why, but I don’t understand all that stuff. As a woman, I just negotiated with him for the nicer flooring.
