Wow, we’re three for three! Archadeck of Austin entered the Archadeck franchise system’s quarterly design contest in all three categories, and guess what … we won all three categories in the 4th Quarter of 2017. What a feat! We were stunned and extremely pleased to be honored not once but three times in the same quarter.
The three design award categories are Deck, Porch/Room and Hardscape/Patio. Each of these categories represents a specialty area in outdoor living design. Added together, they describe the full range of outdoor living space designs Archadeck of Austin creates month after month, project after project, and no two designs are exactly alike.
Our award-winning deck design was this deck-patio-pergola combination project in Steiner Ranch, TX.
The design incorporated something you don’t usually see outdoors … a spiral staircase, which was specifically requested by the homeowner. We were able to locate a spiral staircase kit that wasn’t too expensive and still delivered the quality we needed for this project. Overall this design is an example of packing a LOT of outdoor living into a relatively small space. The deck features low-maintenance composite decking by AZEK and a black metal railing by Fortress.

Archadeck of Austin’s entry in the Porch/Room category was this majestic free-standing covered porch project in Davenport Ranch, West Austin. This multi-faceted design includes a large stone fireplace, an open-rafter ceiling, grand wooden pillars each set into a stone base, a seating wall and a standing seam metal roof. Materials used in the project include white limestone and Western red cedar. The free-standing structure is so large you might call it a pavilion instead of a covered porch! You can see enjoy all the details of this project in our video featured on our YouTube channel:
Our winning entry in the Hardscape/Patio category was a substantial stone patio in the Berry Creek neighborhood of Georgetown, TX. Archadeck of Austin transformed the home’s original patio into a beautiful and more functional multi-purpose outdoor living space. The design included an outdoor kitchen at one end and a sweeping stone seating bench at the other end. The homeowners selected an unusual, stunning flagstone for the patio surface and steps, and the effect is gorgeous.

When we entered all three categories, we didn’t expect to win all three! The Archadeck Outdoor Living national Design Excellence Award winners are selected by the Archadeck locations nationwide. Not only is it an honor to win, the award is made more special by the fact that it is decided by our peers!
We share this honor with our three winning clients, because each project is truly a collaboration between the homeowners and their Archadeck of Austin designer.
