New Covered Patio Construction

Before covered patio construction
Finished Covered Patio with tile roof, paver floor & bar

We recently added a new covered patio to this home in Kendall. The homeowners purchased their pre-construction home in 2012 and wanted to add outdoor space.

The new covered outdoor patio adds an additional 500 sq ft of outdoor entertaining space with paver floors, ceiling fans, a bar & sink. The Dining Room window was converted to Double French Doors, giving access to the covered patio through he Dining Room and Guest Bathroom.

The roof on the covered patio was built to match the pitch of the main structure and covered with the same double roll cement roof tile.

Below are before & photos of the building process for this new covered patio.

What was the cost for this same exact setup. I am looking to purchase a new home, but finding a lot with little to no patio/lanai area. If I do go the route of adding an extension, I would like to have a budget in mind.
