Kihei Lanai & Outdoor Living Area. My client had some extra rooms at his house and approached me about turning the master bedroom into a rental. He wasn’t a fan of sharing living space, so we converted a shabby lanai into a warm and inviting outdoor living area. The room now has its own private entrance and his tenants have basic living needs met. I designed and built new counter-spaces and a table that matched existing corner benches and framework. An old lattice cover was replaced with corrugated roofing, lighting was added, and 2×2 cobalt tiles with mosaic backsplashes were added to give it a fun feel. The lanai now has a sink, dining area, mini fridge, microwave, hotplate, and coffee maker.
