Although the term Millenial may strike fear in the hearts of some lifestyle companies, Archadeck of Birmingham, understand millennials view an outdoor living space as an environment, not just an outdoor area. We also understand that Millenials wait longer and are more prepared when buying their first home than previous generations. Planning and due diligence is key when buying your first home, which is smart. Why should choosing the right builder for your outdoor living area be any less important?

Home Ownership – Finding the Right Place and Making it Your Own

Owning your own home … it means more than just paying a mortgage instead of paying rent. It means taking this new home – new to you, at least – and making it just right for the way you live. If there is anything you don’t like about this home, you’ll need to change it. As your local custom porch and deck builder, we can help with creating the ideal outdoor living space.

When you purchase your home, whether previously owned or a new build, it is important to make it your own. Modifying a home to fit your preferences and your lifestyle is part of the fun of homeownership. You can make every part of it yours in terms of design as well as function. At Archadeck, custom is what we are all about. We realize that part of making a home all your own are the elements that speak to who you are, your tastes and personal style. While other outdoor living companies create cookie cutter outdoor structure designs, we design one-of-a-kind spaces. This is what sets us apart from the crowd.

Ideas for Your New Outdoor Living Environment

  • Would you like to surround yourself with the rustic feel of wood? You’ll likely need to add a new deck, or replace an existing deck on the house.
  • If low-maintenance is key, take a look at our timeless composite and vinyl (PVC) deck designs.
  • Is a porch more your style? You may decide to convert that old deck to a roofed structure. Or start from scratch with a new covered porch or screened porch design. Our cedar porches are another option for those that like the look and feel of wood.
  • If you prefer to keep your options open, consider a deck-and-porch combination and get the best of both worlds!


One of the first things we do when we begin the planning stage of your new outdoor living space is discuss how you plan to use it. Establishing your primary function for utilizing the area will help us design to fit your lifestyle and spatial needs.

  • Do you prefer solitude or do you entertain often? These factors might influence the size that best fits your needs.
  • Do you like to eat outdoors? Cook outdoors? If this is the case, we need to design for a table and chairs, or grilling/outdoor kitchen area for whatever kind of structure you build.
  • Would you enjoy spending time around a fire pit or outdoor fireplace?
  • Is privacy a factor? The proximity to the homes and backyards nearby can influence whether privacy options should be part of your design.

  • Do you have small children or pets? If so, access and security elements will likely be needed to ensure they too can enjoy your new space.
  • Are screened porches more your style? If you like sitting outside but hate the bugs, a screened porch may be the perfect fit. Not only will it keep the insects away, but a porch has the advantage of keeping you out of the rain and hot sun.
