Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake outdid themselves on the elemental beauty of this custom outdoor living space. This project features the use of natural stone, along with wood and metals in a perfect blend. The mix of these materials adds depth, dimension and texture in an innovative way. We are so pleased with the results, as are the clients, we absolutely had to share it with you!
The backstory on this space began with a standard walk out covered concrete patio and aging wooden deck. When the homeowners reached out to Archadeck of Northeast Dallas, they were looking to update their backyard with a space more suitable to scale and architecture of their Irving, TX home.
Here is the area before we began the project:
As you can see in the “before” image, when we met for the design consultation we took measurements based on what the client wanted, which included a larger area for outdoor living. They also requested a space that combined outdoor and open-air space, an outdoor kitchen, an area for a TV and a way to close off the space for privacy. Take A look at our feature video from our YouTube channel showing the completed project:
After sitting down to integrate their wishes into a full-scale design, we came up with a shed roof covered backyard cabana with a side patio and numerous “bells and whistles” to meet their needs.
Laying the foundation for the spacious 20 x 15 covered patio/cabana addition, Archadeck installed a stain & stamp patio. We used a 12" wooden plank pattern on the patio floor in gray with a charcoal release – beautiful!
Just off of the patio we also installed a coordinating hardscape walkway with black stones. Just off the house wall, we also added a stunning cedar fence and finished it with a clear, oil based stain to retain the wood’s natural beauty. The cedar privacy fencing extends the perimeter of the backyard.
Other key features of the custom cabana include the aluminum shutters which are powder-coated bronze. The slats open and close and can be fully expanded or shut in order to provide privacy.
The columns of the covered patio were built in pressure-treated pine and wrapped in Hardie trim. Switching focus to the interior of the space, you will see a mix of wood and natural stone. An interior ceiling of tongue and groove pine melds with the stone used on the custom TV wall and outdoor kitchen. Both areas were built using Grandbury chopped stone in gray, along with a gray Lueder’s stone countertop and mantel shelf on the TV wall.
