When Archadeck of Austin began work on this project it was a diamond in the rough…
The homeowners had an existing porch that was nearly void of space to extend outdoor living activities. Their goal was to not only extend the existing space to enhance versatility but to also create an area that was more conducive to use alongside their newly installed backyard pool.
The project posed some difficult roofline obstacles due to the pitch of the roof of the existing home. Archadeck of Austin was able to come up with a final design that flows perfectly as if the new porch was original to the home.
The space is finished with HardiePlank siding matching the home on the exterior, along with a seamless gutter system. For aesthetics, the post system utilizes larger than normal posts which we wrapped in Cedar. We also created a wall that features a Touchstone drop down TV lift for easy access. The interior of the covered porch glows with beautiful details such as the Synergywood ceiling in Pine in Auburn. Take a look at the beautiful transformation in our project focus video from our YouTube channel:
These homeowners are beyond satisfied with their final project. Now they can enjoy their new backyard pool along with the covered porch simultaneously.

The idea of creating a “new” outdoor living space is most often based on the idea of tearing down and starting anew. However, in many circumstances Archadeck of Austin can use an existing outdoor structure as the catalyst to extend upon, and improve a structure in order to create a “new and much improved” outdoor living space.
Such is the case with the project we recently completed in the Brushy Creek area between Cedar Park and Round Rock, TX. Archadeck of Austin not only professionally washed and stained the home’s existing concrete patio, we also enclosed the area with screen transforming it into a desired outdoor destination.
The homeowners had contacted Archadeck of Austin to inquire about creating a protected outdoor space that delivered shade, protection from insects and the elements, but most of all retained the view. Instead of demolishing their existing concrete and starting from scratch we were able to build and improve upon what they already had.
Starting at the base of the existing structure and building up we began by thoroughly cleaning the concrete patio. From there, we stained the concrete to increase the aesthetics. Archadeck then built openings to include screen which match the circumference and symmetry of the interior openings — this was the key to delivering the unobstructed views the homeowners requested.
On the new porch’s exterior we used HardiePlank siding to match the trim colors of the existing home. In addition to the beauty of this space in respect to originality of design and symmetry, Archadeck of Austin also finished the interior with a beadboard kneewall and rich Synergy Wood on the ceiling after removing the existing Hardie type ceiling which is very common on tract homes in this area. The finished project boasts interior recessed can lighting and a ceiling fan to promote carefree, protected outdoor living. The small concrete pad was added to the exterior entry of the porch from the backyard and is wide enough to grill from.
This project is a perfect example of a low cost outdoor living enhancement that is high on the outdoor living return. We were able to enhance and build upon what was already existing in order to create a comfortable and versatile outdoor room for all to enjoy!

Our recent project in Travis Country West subdivision in SW Austin tells a story that is worth reading for those actively searching for a builder for their outdoor living space project…
In our business we meet many wonderful people from all walks of life, different tastes and varied ideas about what they want from their outdoor living space addition. It gives us great pride and speaks volumes to have the opportunity to work with a client not just once, but twice. As is the case with many of our clients that become “repeat” customers our recent project in SW Austin was completed for homeowners who moved and brought us, their builder, with them.
We originally met with these homeowners some five years back when we built a beautiful deck on their previous home. Their satisfaction in the deck we built for them led them to contact Archadeck of Austin again, upon moving to a new home, when they were ready to enhance their outdoor living space.
Their new deck was built in beautiful, low maintenance PVC AZEK decking in Kona from the Harvest Collection with a custom horizontal railing system. Whereas the norm in deck railing is often the use of vertical railing, Archadeck of Austin turned up the urban appeal of the space and opened up the views by utilizing a horizontal railing design.
The new deck also features a custom cedar freestanding pergola adding a shady spot and loads of charm to the space! To the farthest left side of the deck we also designed and installed a cedar privacy wall that helps subdue the neighbors view into the backyard and vice versa. All the framework of the pergola, and the deck posts are finished in rustic cedar adding warmth and richness to the entire space. Deck lighting by TimberTech and HardiePlank siding skirting finish off the perfection of this backyard space to a “T” and much to the happiness of the homeowner.
We are elated to have the opportunity to work with repeat customers and look forward to evolving with our customers as their lifestyles and outdoor living needs change.
