The demand for professionally designed and built outdoor living spaces in the Austin area shows no sign of slowing down, and, in fact, homeowners are showing increased diversity in regards to the features they want. Nowadays, homeowners see their yard as an extension of the inside of their home, and they are increasingly seeking ways to convert their backyards into comfortable living spaces if it means they can spend more time there.
Outdoor fire features such as outdoor fireplaces and fire pits provide the diversity, coziness and ambiance Austin-area homeowners are seeking in their outdoor living spaces. Not only do fire features make a stunning focal point within an outdoor living space, they make a perfect accompaniment to a patio, deck, porch or screened porch.
Here at Archadeck of Austin we pride ourselves in creating unique, one-of-a-kind outdoor living spaces that complement your home and elevate your outdoor enjoyment. Take a look at some of the custom backyard fire features we have created for our Austin-area clients:
This custom “fire wall” (below), is part of an outdoor living combination space we built in NW Austin. The project also included a deck, screened porch, outdoor kitchen and permeable patio area for the homeowner’s hot tub.
This gas-burning fire wall, which might just be the fire feature of your outdoor living dreams, is a ledgestone wall lined with firebrick and filled with lava rock. Hidden within are 60 and 72-inch stainless steel linear T-burners.
When lit, flames seem to dance along the top of the wall. The height of the fire wall is about even with the surface of the hot tub, so, as you can imagine, occupants of the hot tub will become a captive audience for this magical feature at night. You can read more about this outdoor living combination project in our blog story Challenge us! Archadeck of Austin designs a permeable patio to complete the perfect combination outdoor space.
This patio cover in Austin, TX, by Archadeck of Austin is a true masterpiece of design. As you can clearly see from the images, the space appears as if it has stepped off the pages and into reality from one of those glossy home & garden magazines.
The focal point of the space is the large custom outdoor fireplace. Archadeck of Austin designed and built this fire feature and custom fire boxes attached using the same all natural stone used on the facade of the existing home.
Since the homeowner’s wanted to attached a TV over the mantel of the fireplace, we ingeniously created a built-in space under the hearth that holds the electronic equipment for the TV. By working with the homeowner’s audio-visual professional, conduit was ran to perfect this feature and in addition a speaker system was installed within the ceiling of the space. Not only is the addition of these elements innovative, it also ensures the wiring and cords stay out of view promoting a clean, wireless atmosphere.
Take a look at the project in its entirety in our video featured on our Archadeck of Austin YouTube channel:
This custom fire pit is part of an outdoor living combination space in Cedar Park, TX, that also encompasses a spacious Flagstone patio and cedar pergola. The fire pit is gas-burning with a 36″ burner that heats rock and blue glass stones. The result is a highly effective and beautiful fire pit with stones that glow with firelight and put off a lot of heat.
Don’t you love the custom-designed Texas star pattern of the blue glass stones in the fire pit?
