Outdoor Living Takes on an Air of Modern Design in Brushy Creek, TX!

Archadeck of Austin gave these homeowners a custom space using a mix of natural, sustainable, and low-maintenance materials.

Many of us, maybe even most, assume that outdoor living areas usually take on some semblance of rustic-inspired or intrinsic organic design. While that can be true with the popularity of rustic chic design today, indoors and out, Archadeck of Austin is pleased to show you this unique take on outdoor living – a contemporary deck and patio design.

Old backyard deck

The existing outdoor living space (above) required refurbishing, first and foremost due to rotting wood footings underneath their deck, which used to run the length of their back patio. In preparation for the new low-maintenance AZEK deck, the homeowners demolished the existing deck. Archadeck of Austin came in to re-establish footings, but instead of using standard wood, we replaced them with painted black iron. The AZEK deck material is porch plank tongue and groove. The fresh light gray plays beautifully against the saturated colors of the home, as well as the new custom railing. The light gray deck is also a great complement to the new aggregate concrete patio, which can be reached via custom steps built in matching AZEK porch plank.

Can we talk about these railings? The homeowners wanted a unique, urban-inspired railing design, and Archadeck of Austin provided them with a completely custom system, built with trapezoidal, fascia-mounted cedar posts and an infill of horizontal steel rods. The cedar top cap and posts were painted to perfectly match the vertical siding and trim elements on the home. While robust and substantial, the clean lines of the railing system, along with the use of steel laterals, achieves a very modern inspired design. In keeping with a clean and finished aesthetic, we provided a finished fascia in matching low-maintenance AZEK porch plank.
