Here in the Valley of the Sun we have close to seven months, from October to April, of average temperatures between 65 and 85 degrees. Do you have an inviting outdoor living space to take advantage of this gift? Do you have friends and family coming to visit and enjoy our weather?
Cook Remodeling has developed many strategies for you to extend your living space to the outdoors. We have column removals down to a science so you can enjoy unobstructed views and have more use of your patio. We can create an outdoor living room and fireplace taking the comfort of home outdoors. Perhaps you always wanted to have your own Gazebo in your own yard, we’ve had the pleasure of building a few of those around town!
Maybe you’d rather enclose your patio or do a garage conversion to have an additional climate controlled living area. And when the days are hot, wouldn’t you rather use an outdoor kitchen to do your cooking, to keep the house cool? Cook Remodeling can design an outdoor kitchen to meet your needs, including a wood fired pizza oven! How convenient and fun!
As a child, did you get to enjoy a playhouse or a tree house or build your own fort? Do you long to get away, but want to stay near to the conveniences of home? For those who have the space on their property, building a guest house for multifunctional purposes is very popular.
It can be specialized for many uses:
- as a pool house, recreation room or home theater
- for a private and separate home office
- as place for an exercise room, or a hobby room
- a destination for a personal home sanctuary or place to retreat
A guest house or casita’s main function can be having a separate space to host visiting guests for everyone’s comfort. Perhaps you need to be the caretaker of an aging parent, and want to give them a sense of independence by providing their own place to live? Or a space for a caretaker to help you with a disabled spouse or child?
We have developed several photo boards to gather ideas for your home remodeling project at Pinterest. In the Wow Kitchens board there are some photos of outdoor kitchens. In the Great Home Living Board there are several pictures of guest houses to peruse. You can set up your own page and gather photos of how you want your remodeled home to look. Another resource to find pictures to define and customize your home is houzz.com. Make comments of what you like, and even what you don’t as an effective tool to communicate to your professional designer.
Cook Remodeling has built over 120 guest houses for families to enjoy. We welcome the challenge of developing a clever remodeling design to exceed our client’s expectations!

Casitas and Outdoor Living Client Reviews
The Cook team is very conscientious, does quality work, and is knowledgeable, expressive, full of good ideas and work in a cooperative mode. The casita matches our home very well. There were good design elements that were incorporated that enhanced the overall look of the guest house. Even some neighbors let us know how impressed they were with the professionalism of the workers.

John & Carol W. Room Extension, Golf Cart Garage, Guest House/Casita in Sun Lakes, AZ
In talking to area inspectors for referrals for a contractor to build our 1500 sq foot pool house, all spoke highly of Cook Remodeling. They use highly qualified employees and subs, and have never been happier with the quality of construction. We would not hesitate to recommend Cook Remodeling.
Ron & Denise D. Pool House in Chandler, AZ
Space and square footage was premium on our lot. Cook Remodeling designed a first class guest house…we love the snack bar. It tied in nicely to the main house.

Larry & Jeanne G. Roof Top Deck Remodel in Scottsdale, AZ
Cook Remodeling was helpful in our design. We had complete satisfaction of quality and workmanship. Our Project Manager always did what he said he was going to do; he was top-notch, 100% dependable. They have good pricing. I hired them twice and would hire them again.
If one is at all interested in renovation, upgrading, or additions, there is no one in whom I would have more faith in craftsmanship than Cook Remodeling.

We were impressed with Cook Remodeling’s total quality, timely communications, commitment to the plan and willingness to adjust to unforeseen circumstances. Cook Remodeling is a top quality, excellently managed company. Company representatives were very customer service oriented. They were on track by meeting objectives as stated in the schedule. They were very diligent by leaving the project area clean and free of construction debris daily. The follow up and the close project administration is very noteworthy. Workmanship and professionalism of this team is evident by the completed high quality project! We highly recommend this company for any remodeling project.

Bill N. Patio Remodeling in Scottsdale, AZ
This is just to tell you how extremely happy we are with the work performed by Cook Remodeling. Everything was performed in a very timely manner. Clean up was performed by every one of your workers. Your Project Manager was great and returned every phone call. Your subs & carpenters did a superb job on framing, cement and stucco. All was done to our satisfaction. It’s a rare event today when you feel you got what you paid for, I would gladly recommend you to any one. Having been a sales rep for builders for the past 20 yrs, I can appreciate your workmanship. Also the work you did 23 yrs ago is as good as new, and believe me we have used it plenty. Thanking you once again.
Stuart & Dolores K. Patio Enclosure in Sun Lakes, AZ
Cook Remodeling removed the middle columns on our patio to give us an unobstructed view of the golf course. The stucco and painting was done very well. They gave us a schedule and completed it in a manner that was not rushed. They are an experienced team, and did an excellent job. They cleaned up every day, and were very professional. The project looks great, and we will definitely use them again.
Don & Brenda H. Column Removal In Sun Lakes, AZ
Cook Remodeling provides a detailed contract so everyone understands the scope of work for the project. They started on schedule, and cleaned the worksite every evening. They kept me informed of what to expect everyday. I am retired, so I was on the job site daily, and I saw first hand the quality workmanship that Cook Remodeling put into my project. The workers were all very professional and courteous and were extremely experienced in their various trades. The Project Manager visited the site regularly, and was available by phone. Its been nine months since the completed project, and everything still looks great. Cook Remodeling is committed to providing an outstanding product and customer satisfaction. I am positive that they were the right choice for my project, and recommend Cook Remodeling to everyone.
Terry M. Detached Garage and Workshop, Covered Patio in Florence, AZ
I wanted to write to express my sincere appreciation for Cook Remodeling’s efforts for my Mom and late Dad’s casita. Your employees went above and beyond any expectation that I could have had. Not only was my Dad impressed with your work ethics and knowledge, but you continued to patiently support my Mom’s needs after his passing that went far beyond the terms of the contract. I enthusiastically recommend the team of Cook Remodeling for any remodeling work.
