Round Rock, TX Patio Undergoes a Miraculous Transformation Extension in the Most Beautifully Artistic Way
One of the perks of being Austin’s favorite builder of combination outdoor living spaces with integrated fire pits is that beauty is all around … you just have to look for it and see the potential.
This was the case with this rear backyard outdoor living space rebirth.
Wanting a larger area to enjoy their outdoors but also looking to maintain privacy options for their outdoor space, this Austin family connected with Archadeck of Austin after hearing such wonderful things about our process, our reputation with hardscapes and our work in specializing in Red Rock outdoor fire features.
For us, being Austin’s favorite custom fire pit builder is icing on the proverbial outdoor cake, as our claim to fame has been designing and creating memorably stunning combination patios and pergolas with niche outdoor living rooms and outdoor kitchens.
TURNING SMALL AND PLAIN INTO LOVELY AND LUXURIOUS
Remember the story of Eliza Doolittle in George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion and her seamless transformation? That’s kind of what this outdoor re-creation was like. Truly transformative in every way.
We started with the home’s “good bones” and turned boring and so-so into a true masterpiece.
This well-preserved Round Rock, TX classic home needed more. More functionality. More aesthetic appeal. More outdoor living spaces. Our solution was to kick it up a notch by kicking out the rear of the outdoor living covered patio they already had in place.
We removed the downward staircase that sat at the left rear of the home and extended the area to triple its former size.
In addition to increasing its size, we added stunning finishing touches, so much so that this outdoor living space is now known as the crowing jewel of the neighborhood’s Austin backyards – and a recent favorite spot for friends and neighbors to frequent.
ARTFULLY DESIGNED WITH ATTENTION TO EVERY DETAIL
As the extended patio was built out, we decided to add an angled staircase on the right side of the structure, as it led to a more fluid green space in the rear yard.
To compliment the black powder-coated railing, we chose Hideaway privacy black metal screens to create the feeling of enclosure and intimacy on both the left and right sides of the newly extended area.
In keeping with an eye for beauty – as well as safety and functionality – we added a 36-inch iron fortress railing, along the far width of the space. It defines the useable area beautifully.
At the base of it, we created a low maintenance garden area for accent shrubs and greenery, giving the homeowners the option to further customize it with perennials at their whim.
Likewise, nestled into an angled corner where the new staircase is located, we installed an inset garden area to introduce more depth, elegance, color and fragrance to the space.
SHARING THE EVENING WITH THE WARMTH OF FRIENDS AND A NEW FIRE FEATURE
Especially now with longer evening hours, family and visitors are more than welcome to stay outdoors as long as they wish warmed by the conversation and laughter of good company and this stunning fire feature.
A sea of multicolored coral, white and gray glass serves as the foundation for the vibrant gas flames that appear with a flick of the finger. All of the surfaces of the new fire pit and planters were created with Lueders Limestone, both on top as well as on the bottom. For those not familiar with it, Lueders is a tried and true Texas limestone from a nearby quarry in North Texas.
The stone’s natural composition boasts a rich variation in gradients and colors from buff, light-gold, dove gray, to even deep-golds which partners well with the fire pit interior space.
Carrying through the new schema of warmth and welcome for this extended outdoor living oasis, the homeowners decided to choose intense orange colored all-weather cushions for their outdoor living furniture and accent rugs.
