From a distance, this multi-level sprawling outdoor living creation is what deck and porch combination design is all about.
To create a wide-open patio, deck and covered porch combination space, Archadeck started at the far left rear of the home by installing a concrete overlay patio that has the luxe look of travertine. It accommodates an outdoor barbecue and alfresco dining area, with generous room for seating many family and guests.
To the immediate right, you’ll find a two-step rise to a lower level deck which is a great way to handle guest overflow when entertaining at that backyard level.
Continuing to the far right is the Holy Grail of this stunning outdoor transformation – a majestic covered porch, accessed by a 3-tier staircase.
The interior of this open space is the stuff rustic dreams are made of. Cedar is the exquisite material of choice used here by this covered deck builder.
Like a row of soldiers at attention, the beams in the ceiling reflect and pay homage to the incredible richness and beauty of this treasured wood.
Notice the stunning and captivating open rafter design on the interior porch ceiling starring our perennial favorite tongue and groove cedar. The gable roof porch extension for this project with beam/kind truss detail defines it as a unique custom design for this most deserving family.
In addition to crafting the ceiling from cedar, it was also used for the deck floor, as well as for the deck skirting.
Less expensive than teak and lighter than oak, cedar possesses many major advantages that make it suitable for outdoor furniture, as well as building outdoor structures. One of its strongest benefits over time is its ability to resist insects, rot, termites, and Powder Beetles.
With its natural resistance to rot and decay, a protective finish is an optional choice. But if you want to enjoy the aroma of varieties such as Western Red Cedar and Incense Cedar, leave the wood unsealed and bask in the multi-sensory experience of this amazing wood.
Creative Storage Solutions With This Round Rock, TX, Deck Builder
In addition to designing and meticulously building this beautiful backyard oasis, outdoor living builder Jim Schallon was forward-thinking enough to include storage.
The height of the deck left plenty of room underneath for dry space storage – great for garden tools, lawn equipment, and other outdoor living and upkeep necessities. The great thing about it from an aesthetic perspective is that it is out of sight, secure, and totally sheltered from the weather. For access after dusk, there is even a light installed conveniently in this area.
It is attributes like intelligent design, flawless craftsmanship, and attention to detail that make this Austin outdoor building team so highly regarded. For more exciting features about this premier Archadeck of Austin location, visit us on Facebook and check us out on Google, too.
