Archadeck asks, will a covered patio be enough?
You can’t always expect your new home to come complete with your ideal outdoor living space. Why not? It’s not your ideal space unless it is custom designed just for you. Do you want a patio, open or covered? Deck and patio combination? Screened porch and covered patio? Outdoor kitchen, simple or elaborate? Bar seating? Outdoor fireplace? Big screen TV? Room for dining, lounging, or both?
There are so many variations when considering an outdoor space for quiet relaxation, family get-togethers, festive parties or all of the above. Make a list of everything you’d want in your ideal outdoor living space, then call Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake to bring your vision to life.
Archadeck: covered patios, outdoor kitchens, and more
These homeowners in Fate, TX, wanted ample room for spending time outdoors. Their vision was to have an all-inclusive outdoor space where they could cook, dine, relax, and watch movies and sports. We designed a spacious patio and cabana with a hip roof that is not attached to the house (due to city codes and setbacks).
Take a look at these amazing before and after’s:
On the interior, the ceiling is a beautiful tongue-and-groove pine with a dark walnut stain. Supporting the roof are 8×8 cedar posts with custom wide bracing, exposed cedar beams, and two custom king trusses, all painted dark chocolate.
At the base of the posts are stone-wrapped columns made from multi-colored Lueders chopped stone with smooth Lueders charcoal tops. The two posts and columns that are closer together are joined with a small stone seating wall (or planter) also made of chopped stone.
Amenities chosen by the homeowners are incorporated into the structure, including 12 recessed can lights, 2 large industrial fans, and 6 Polk speakers. We also installed 3 infrared heaters at the lower edge of the ceiling where the ceiling meets the lower beams. The chill of the night air will not keep these homeowners indoors.
Archadeck’s outdoor kitchens can be simple or elaborate
All of the beautiful stone you see in the outdoor kitchen is Lueders stone— multi-colored chopped stone with smooth charcoal tops. This U-shaped kitchen is equipped with a Grand Turbo grill, Turbo griddle, two Turbo refrigerators, a double trash can drawer, single drawer storage, a single access door, and a double access door.
For the clients’ entertainment, we custom-built a TV wall of multi-colored chopped stone matching the outdoor kitchen and stone columns. The mantel below the TV is cedar painted dark chocolate to match the beams and posts. The homeowners added their personal touch to the mantel with colorful tiles from Mexico.
Last but not least, the stamp and stain patio is just beautiful! The stamp we used is a 12” wood plank pattern, and the stain is winter gray with a charcoal release. The effect is just right.
