Poolside Cabana Completes This Ultimate Backyard Getaway Spot In Heath, Tx

Outdoor covered patio with kitchen and bar

How do you take your back yard from boring to roaring – and by roaring, we mean lots of good times and family fun – in Rockwall, TX? You call Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake, that’s how! For Dallas custom patios, Archadeck will not disappoint you.

We realize it may sound odd to say that a beautiful home with a backyard swimming pool was less than lively, but the Before and After pictures may prove the case. The home had a small elevated deck overlooking the pool, and there was a concrete paved area around the pool, accessible from the home’s back door. But … where was the party? Where would you gather to sit, cook out, eat, watch sports on TV and blend up a batch of cocktails?

Before and after images of covered patio with outdoor kitchen and bar

Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake specializes in covered patios, along with several other types of outdoor living structures. We met with these Rockwall homeowners and listened to their ideas as they described what they wanted in their dream outdoor living space. To sum it up, they wanted a poolside place where they could entertain and spend time comfortably outside. We designed a covered patio that fulfilled all of their desires including an outdoor fireplace, an outdoor kitchen with bar seating, and room for comfy rattan recliners so they can watch the games on their large-screen TV. Outdoors. On the patio. Poolside. Yes!

That should liven things up!

With several components working together to create the perfect outdoor space, this project is considered a combination outdoor living project, our favorite kind.

The custom stone outdoor fireplace, which is gas burning, was built using 4" Oklahoma Stone with soldier borders and chocolate natural Lueders limestone tops. Stunning, right?!

The outdoor kitchen features a grill, storage and a unique cutting board where you can brush debris into a hole and directly into the trash. Talk about convenient! We also added plenty of electrical outlets for the homeowners’ blender and such… Adjacent to the grill and countertop is a long stretch of bar where you can pull up a chair and chow down. There are even two sets of bar seating – one group facing the pool and the other facing the TV. Take your pick!

Be sure to take a look at the patio floor, too – a concrete floor finished with a stain-and-stamp method using a Roman slate textured stamp and bone walnut stain. Durable and attractive.

You may notice, when you compare the Before and After photos, that we had to remove the elevated deck in order to build this covered patio design. However, we didn’t want to take the view away from family members in the second-story playroom; they enjoyed being able to look out at the pool below. So we replaced the sliding glass doors up there with a picture window that serves the same purpose. View saved!
