This Central Illinois backyard has been transformed into an outdoor home theater and entertainment space with a natural backdrop of trees. A massive symmetrical wood-burning fireplace has been constructed using charcoal country stone with seating area nestled under a covered patio. The thick mortar lines bring a rustic aesthetic of feudal mansions or castles – a fitting look for the Lord of the manor. Using dark stone flooring to bring sharp contrast, guests' focus is biased up to the fireplace, while a large screen television makes this the royal viewing area for sports and movies in the beautiful evenings. A custom ceiling fan provides accent and function, keeping the air moving on warm days and helping with smoke. An adjacent matching grill island providing hot food throughout the revelry keeps the fun outside during the big game.
Using the same country stone for the island keeps their entire space uniformed and durable. The limestone counters and caps provide prep area and space to install a smoker. A Summerset Grills built-in Sizzler grill will keep the burgers and dogs coming throughout the big game, while the matching storage cabinet keeps the area pristine and orderly when not being used. The experts at Trinity Stone have crafted a gorgeous space to enjoy throughout the seasons. Since every man is the king of their own castle, this Illinois backyard has been designed to match.
