We get calls all the time at http://www.garrettoutdoorliving.com/ from clients that build outdoor kitchens or outdoor living spaces and it is not functional. It is the contractor/designer responsibility to ensure the flow and function of the space. Often homeowners in DFW area found out after the project is finished that they have no room for furniture, no space to sit, walk and enjoy. When creating a great design, one must think of future function of the flow of the space. One of our recent client in Frisco had to redo his outdoor space due to steps been build in the wrong location and his guests kept tripping. Although elevation add a great visual to the space, putting them in the wrong space can be a costly mistake. Our clients in Plano and Murphy had a simular problem, which we were asked to correct.
