Why make just one change when you can go all the way and achieve total outdoor living satisfaction? That’s what our clients in Bee Cave, TX, did when they decided to enlarge their deck. Not stopping there, they added a shade structure and a patio. Deck and patio builder Archadeck of Austin designed and built all of the components for this beautiful outdoor home improvement project.
Here’s what the homeowners chose to include in their new-and-improved outdoor living space:
- Bigger deck—much bigger!
- Stunning, large shade structure
- New patio with sitting area at ground level
- Concealed under-deck storage area
Deck Designer Archadeck of Austin
For anyone who’s wondering why a deck might need to be “designed,” one look at this amazing deck will answer that question. This covered deck is a good example of the design component in the phrase design and build. Now you know why we say Archadeck of Austin doesn’t just build, we design and build. You’d be hard pressed to find a conventional deck contractor who can produce results like this. The Archadeck difference is on display here in our attention to detail and expert craftsmanship.
A deck covered by a roof is, for all practical purposes, a covered porch. The covered portion of this deck is spacious enough for a dining table and chairs plus a seating area with comfortable chairs and pillows. Part of the large deck remains uncovered for outdoor cooking, and there you’ll find the clients’ grill and Big Green Egg.
For their new deck surface, the homeowners chose low-maintenance synthetic decking by AZEK. Because Archadeck of Austin is a Platinum AZEK and TimberTech contractor, we have worked with these brands more than most deck builders. You can trust us to stay up-to-date with the correct installation methods and the latest AZEK and TimberTech outdoor building products.
The black iron deck railing is from Fortress. The skirting around the bottom of the deck/porch is Western red cedar, a beautiful way to conceal an under-deck storage area!
Porch Designer Archadeck of Austin
This handsome porch cover demonstrates the importance we place on making your outdoor living addition look original to your home. The roof of the porch ties into the home’s roof and gutter system perfectly. The trim on the new soffits and beams is the same distinctive color as the trim on the home.
Tall, sturdy steel posts support the porch roof, which features an open gable design with decorative queen truss details at open end of the gable. From this angle you can see the interior porch ceiling we built with handcrafted, prefinished tongue-and-groove ceiling boards from Synergy Wood, our favorite. For breezes on a still day, we installed a heavy-duty ceiling fan. Finally, lighting recessed in the ceiling above will increase the functionality of this porch at night.
Bee Cave TX Patio Builder Archadeck of Austin
The slope of this back yard means the deck is pretty far away from ground level. The homeowners wanted an additional outdoor space they could enjoy at the lower level, too. We designed a curvilinear patio with a curved stone seating wall that hugs the intimate seating area. The patio surface is a durable, textured concrete overlay. The stone seating wall features a smooth Lueders stone top.
