Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio asks… Who said you can’t reap the benefits of your beautiful backyard throughout fall and winter?

Fall has arrived!The glory of fall is here and the weather is cooling. Because of this, many homeowners are beginning the process of shutting down their outdoor living spaces. They are covering their patio furniture, preparing their landscapes for the impending dormant season and basically heading indoors until the warm weather of spring emerges. But why? Who said you can’t reap the benefits of your beautiful backyard throughout fall and winter?

If you really want to get more use out of your outdoor living space, Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio can help expand your living space with hardscaping. Hardscaping can be used to create an outdoor room with amenities that rival your indoor space, such as a full outdoor kitchen, built-in seating, and an outdoor fireplace or fire pit. This outdoor space will be perfect for entertaining guests and will allow you to enjoy nature and engage yourself in your landscape rather than just admire it from your window.

Decks and patios naturally blend together because of the allure of stone and wood as it mingles.

Outdoor kitchens are fully functional cooking spaces that allow the chef in your family to cook all your meals outdoors without running back and forth to the kitchen. They usually include a grill island, a sink, a small refrigerator, cabinets and a bar for seating and an eating area. One of the best parts about having an outdoor kitchen as part of your outdoor living area, is that not only will you and your guests get to enjoy dinner alfresco but the chef can participate in the festivities while preparing the meal as well.

When the autumn nights begin to settle in, even though it may be a little chilly, a fire element can warm you right up and give you an excuse to be outside. Whether it’s down time with the family, intimate get-togethers with friends, or a full-blown party, having a fireplace or fire pit adds another dimension to entertaining. Inevitably, it becomes the focal point, and as most who have spent time staring into a blaze will attest, it encourages friendly conversation and warm feelings. Even while relaxing at home in your hot tub or sauna, a fire feature offers a healthy means of de-stressing.

Much like any outdoor living structure or element, an outdoor kitchen or fire feature can be customized to match your tastes and needs. Even with a smaller yard, you can still create an intimate space for gatherings. From the furniture and appliances to the actual fire feature itself, there are plenty of ways you can customize your outdoor space and still reap all of these benefits:

  • Entertainment – nothing says gather a group of friends and family together like freshly prepared food under the stars or s’mores and spooky stories around the fire pit or fireplace
  • Cooking – outdoor cooking is more robust when you use a gas grill, Big Green Egg cooker or wood burning pizza oven in the great outdoors…not to mention all of the culinary creations you can prepare over the open flame of a fire pit or outdoor fireplace
  • Ambiance – even if you aren’t into throwing parties or entertaining, the ambiance a fire feature or warm inviting outdoor kitchen brings is worth the investment alone, especially if you are into star gazing with a loved one while sitting next to one of nature’s most captivating elements
  • Added home value – both an outdoor kitchen and a fire feature are attractive elements that create an enthralling focal point that can really help make your home stand apart from others

The inclusion of an outdoor kitchen or outdoor fire feature, such as a fireplace or fire pit, or even a combination of the two will enhance as well as extend the use of your Miami Valley backyard, allowing you to entertain friends and family for virtual year round outdoor fun, even during the colder months.

Our Dayton & Cincinnati outdoor living space creations emphasize the difference is in the details!

banana split

Don’t you agree the details make the finished project more delicious?

Like many other things in life, the details can make a tremendous difference in the outcome, and, in your ultimate satisfaction and happiness. Take for example, a simple banana split; the bananas and triple scoops of ice cream certainly are delicious, but would it be as satisfying if you left out the whipped cream and sweet cherry from the top?  Outdoor living space designs, too, play by the same rules. The details of the design make your experience, and how you view the space more fulfilling. Archadeck of West Central and SW Ohio specializes in providing our customers with a detailed customer oriented design while paying attention to the intricate details that provide a true, custom, one-of-a-kind structure.

  • The details of our hardscape designs: When we design a hardscape, such as a patio, retaining wall, outdoor fireplace or even a custom fire pit, we include the “little extras” that make the addition aesthetically appealing and cohesive. For example, when designing an outdoor living combination containing a deck and patio combination. Often, the deck is rectangular or square. In order to “soften” the linear feel of the space, we will design the patio with curved, rounded edges. We also like to add a soldier or sailor course to the outer edge of many of our patios to help define the transition from the patio into the landscape. We will often introduce the use of another color into the border as well. This results in a dramatic impact aesthetically and increases the WOW factor!

  • How we “cope” with the details: When referring to “coping” with the details, we mean it in the literal sense. A little detail we often include in many of our hardscape designs, including fire places, ledges, and pillars is the use of three-dimensional coping to visually enhance our structures. Take a look at what we mean:

  • More details – Not your traditional deck:  The details don’t end with our hardscape designs. As you can clearly see, our custom deck designs often include curved, radius edging, picture framed borders, integrated seating and plants along with other intricate details you just don’t see everyday!

There are thousands of little details that go into designing and building an outdoor living  project – some that you see, and some that you don’t.  But their sum total makes up the look, feel and underlying quality of the project as a whole. There are many details that are standard in our designs – both aesthetic and structural – that come as a result of having built thousands of projects. As you can clearly see, Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio knows the difference in your satisfaction and happiness for years to come lies within the details.

How to get what you want in your outdoor design the first time around!

Mechanicsburg Ohio unique outdoor living designs

Let us help you bring the backyard you always dreamed about to life!

As part one of our three part series on Planning Designing & Building Considerations to Ensure Your Ideal Outdoor Space, we explore the realm of getting what you want in your outdoor living space design now and ensuring proper planning for future additions:

Have you found yourself filled with regret over your outdoor living space addition? Did you set forth with an ideal in your mind about how you wanted the space to evolve over time as your lifestyle, needs and budget evolves? For example, were you looking forward to adding a patio in the future to use in conjunction with your backyard deck only to find out the placement  you desire isn’t possible with your existing outdoor space? Many homeowners have found themselves in this same situation, wishing they would have planned their space for the here and now, and with future additions in mind.

Enjoyment now, and later:

Archadeck Outdoor Living strives to provide you with an outdoor living space that encompasses everything you want in your particular design, now, and with future additions in mind. Our approach to the design and building process is poised to accommodate the customer needs and desires in every way. This means we help fulfill your wishes in getting everything you are expecting from your design the first time around. From providing the aesthetics you want, to a space allows you to carry out the functions you desire within the space. We even take into consideration any future plans or additions you may have in mind for the future.

Now and Later candy

Just like this classic treat — our outdoor living spaces can bring enjoyment now, and later, where future additions are concerned, with our phased building program!

Of course, in a perfect world, each of our clients would have the ability to be able to build their anticipated outdoor living combination space in one project. We realize that lifestyles and budgets influence and change what is possible and that each project is as individual as the clients we create them for, with that in mind, we offer the flexibility to build your outdoor environment in phases over time. We call this phased, or staged building.

In staged/phased building, Archadeck works with (you) the client to create a “master plan” of their completed project design once all the elements are completed, then, together we choose a starting point to begin.This allows homeowners the freedom to build their ideal backyard in stages making it easier on their budget, and with less of an impact on their lifestyle. Phased building consists of engineering, designing and building your outdoor space in phases so that future additions or amendments can be added easily. This is made possible by building with your future circumstances and the structural integrity of your project in mind. We always take into consideration the traffic flow, unity and functions of how each portion of the design unifies to create a unified outdoor environment.

Our Process:

Xenia, OH deck and pergola combination outdoor oasis

The style, and size of your outdoor furnishings are an important consideration in our design process.

We offer flexibility to our customers through a detailed materials and pricing menu. This menu breaks every facet of your design down to the fasteners used to attach a deck. Each element that goes into creating your outdoor living space is listed such as different composite materials, various railing choices, balusters, even various pergolas to add to your design or lighting packages — it is all listed and broken down a la carte. Our menu also lets you play around with the options and see how different features and colors look together.  It takes the guess-work out of your outdoor structure design. This will allow you, the homeowner, to change, amend or add items to keep your design on target with your intended budget. This feature is also perfect for people who aren’t exactly sure what they want.

In addition, during our consultation, we ask the “right” questions; and leave no “stone unturned” in delivering your ideal design. Along with desired functions and aesthetics, we also inquire about what size and type of outdoor furnishings you intend to utilize within your space. For example, typically a standard-sized outdoor dining table takes up an area 6 feet long and 42 inches wide, with each standard-size outdoor chair taking up an additional two feet. Factor in ample pull out room for each chair will add another two feet per chair. This adds up to a space that takes up a 12′ x 12′ area. In addition to dining tables, most homeowners want a place for seating as well, which will tack on additional space. Once you add side tables and accompaniment pieces, such as end tables or coffee tables, you are looking at more space than most homeowners had anticipated for their furnishings. This is why discussing furniture choices is also an important part of the design process and it is a good idea to have at least some ideas in mind before you meet with us to discuss your design.

Are you filled with regret this Memorial Day weekend for not having an outdoor space that measures up?

Memorial Day Weekend in Dayton & Cincinnati OHMemorial Day is a time when we come together to honor our fallen heroes that perished in active military service. It is a time of pride and remembrance. In honor of the occasion, it is common for family and friends to also gather together for the annual “Memorial Day weekend” outdoor activities. To many, the weekend marks the beginning of the outdoor living season. Depending on your traditions, this may include outdoor recreational games, attending a parade, raising a flag, (she should remain at half-mast until noon, as per tradition).enjoying that inaugural dip in the pool, and barbecuing or preparing food outdoors and dining with the ones you hold dear. Among the most favored Memorial Day “cookout” selections include hamburgers & hot dogs, barbecued chicken, beef brisket and grilled seafood.

Deck and gazebo perfect for backyard parties

This outdoor living space is perfect for outdoor celebrations of any kind!

Much like the traditions of Memorial Day weekend that are practiced by most Americans, the backyard deck and/or patio plays a significant role in the festivities as well. Outdoor structures set the stage for outdoor food preparation and dining. They provide a place to relax and engage in conversation. They also provide space for extended entertaining opportunities, especially for large gatherings which you cannot accommodate within your home. Plus, no one wants to be “cooped” up indoors on Memorial Day weekend!  Having the proper outdoor structures in place can quite honestly, make or break the success of how much enjoyment you and your guests get out of your Memorial Day celebration.

If your current outdoor living space is leaving you filled with regret wishing you would’ve upgraded or set the wheels in motion to plan and build a space prior to this weekend’s arrival, all is not lost! There is still time to embark on improving your outdoor living environment prior to the next outdoor celebration you have planned, but now is the time to contact us to ensure you don’t let another opportunity for enjoying those special times with family and friends pass you by.

Another look at how we created the ultimate outdoor environment for entertaining.

At Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio we specialize in designing and building outdoor living environments for the way you and your family want to live outdoors. From classic deck and patio designs, porches and screened porches for added protection and outdoor living spaces that combine varied elements.

Many of today’s up-to-the-moment outdoor living spaces include two or more components to further enhance outdoor living opportunities such as Memorial Day, Father’s Day, Graduation and other special occasions. These can range from deck and patio combinations, deck, patio and porch combinations, and even combinations that include pergolas, fire features and outdoor kitchens.

When we design your ideal backyard retreat we also pay attention to the small things that can add a tremendous amount of function, and beauty, to your outdoor living space. A spacious deck with integrated seating, for example, will allow space for more relaxation. While integrating outdoor lighting into your deck space will add ambiance and extended enjoyment for you and your guests long after the sun goes down. Taking it a step further, we readily design outdoor environments for homeowners throughout Dayton and Cincinnati which include both a deck and patio. Some additional amenities that enliven these combination spaces include outdoor fire features such as fireplaces and fire pits, and even outdoor kitchens! In cases where shade is a concern we often integrate a covered porch or pergola containing a shade enhancement such as a Shade FX canopy. The choices available in our design combinations are endless, and we carefully customize your outdoor living space combination to suit your needs and desires.

Don't let the season pass you by

What do potato chips and outdoor living structures have in common?

The ultimate backyard room

The ultimate backyard in Xenia, Ohio is also the ultimate outdoor living combination space.

There is no denying the appeal of what is now referred to as the outdoor living space combination. An outdoor living space combination marries the function, and aesthetic elements of two or more outdoor structures to make them function as one large space. You may also see these versatile spaces referred to as “outdoor rooms” as well throughout the media. Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio has watched the popularity of this type of outdoor living environment soar to new heights over the past few years, as homeowners have evolved to transferring all the assets of interior casual living outdoors.

potato chips

Outdoor living spaces are a lot like potato chips: it is difficult to stop at just one.

To try to grasp the concept itself, you only need to step into your home and consider the parts of your home you turn to for relaxing ( the living or family room, of course), entertaining ( the dining room, most likely) and other recreational activities you enjoy ( the living room or playroom.) Now simply, take those areas and think about moving that function outside, and marrying it to provide multiple functions and voilà… you have mastered the concept behind the appeal of the outdoor living combination space!

The only difficult part for homeowners is deciding which structures to marry to gain the most benefits for their individual needs. Quality designed and built outdoor structures are a lot like potato chips… it’s hard to stop with just one! With that in mind, here are some outdoor living combination ideas to consider:

  • The Deck & Patio Combination
This deck, patio and fire pit flow naturally as one outdoor room!

This deck, patio and fire pit flow naturally as one outdoor room!

Decks are the epitome of outdoor living spaces. They are as American as apple pie, and most homeowners begin their outdoor living combinations from the deck and branch out. Decks complement almost every outdoor living structure, from pergolas to patios, decks afford the accompaniment beautifully. Patios in particular, look and function the part when used in a deck and patio combination. This is due to the natural flow created when a deck gently descends into a patio. It opens up and extends your outdoor living space, along with enhancing it. There are more factors at work here than just the added space a deck and patio provide, much more. Decks are generally built from wood or a natural looking “wood toned” synthetic, whereas patios are built from natural stone or hardscape materials that emulate the look and feel of stone. Wood and stone are elements that flow well together. Even in nature, if you look closely you may catch the beauty of a babbling brook laden with stones and hardwoods weeping gently over the bank. Wood and stone just naturally look great when fused together in any setting!

  • The Deck & Porch or Patio & Porch Combination

Deciding on a deck and porch, or patio and porch outdoor living combination is for the homeowner that wants to “have their cake and eat it too.” Decks and patios offer open air outdoor living spaces that are easily complimented by retaining walls, pergolas, spas and even outdoor fire pits. The only drawback to an open air outdoor living space is that in some circumstances, the weather can influence its functionality. By combining an open (covered) porch with a patio or deck, you and your family will have a haven to retreat to when the weather becomes unfavorable, and a shady spot to enjoy on even the most humid of days. Porches can be designed to include a myriad of creature comforts such as ceiling fans, to add even more comfort.

This outdoor living combination includes a deck, patio and screened porch.

Taking This Concept a Step Farther…

Taking the cues from the deck and porch, or patio and porch combination, homeowners can also extend the protective benefits even farther with a screened porch. Screened porches offer shade and protection from inclement weather while also preventing insects and less dirt and pollen to enter the area. Screened porches can be designed to function similarly to an interior room including sound systems, fans, electrical outlets, outdoor fireplaces and even a spot to mount a television. These nuances open up a world of possibilities within an outdoor living combination.

  • For Your Consideration

In addition to decks, patios and porches there are many more outdoor living structures that make the grade as part of a successful union. Among these is the pergola. Pergolas are the one structure that blends seamlessly with any outdoor setting. Pergolas can be used as a shade structure much like a covered porch, and can also be used solely as an aesthetic feature to add dimension and character to a space. Pergolas also make a beneficial privacy barrier alongside a spa deck aiding as a buffer from prying eyes.

Outdoor kitchens are also a tasty accompaniment to most any outdoor living space. They can be easily integrated into a deck or patio setting, poolside, or even within an attached or freestanding porch setting. Having the added capability to prepare food outdoors for gatherings, or even intimate dinners, as well as plenty of seating adds to the function of your outdoor space and opens the door to endless entertaining possibilities. Our outdoor kitchen designs often include ranges, refrigerators, warming drawers, and even the Big Green Egg smoker known to many as the ultimate cooking experience!  We can even include serving and food preparation areas providing more seating similar to that of an “eat in” interior kitchen with plenty of counter space to add bar stools for additional seating or to use as an outdoor bar area.

The perfect sequel to outdoor living bliss: The deck and patio combination built using our phased building program

Adding a patio or deck to your home expands your outdoor living space and increases the appeal of your home. A patio or deck can provide an area to entertain and a space to relax in the evening with friends and family. When it comes to having this outdoor living upgrade installed by your outdoor structure builder, the hardest choice can sometimes be deciding between a deck and patio. Here at Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio, you don’t have to make that decision because we can custom design and build an outdoor living space that encompasses both a deck and a patio. Giving you the best of both worlds!

Deck and patio combinations are among the hottest trend in outdoor living right now, but the allure of this duo goes way beyond a passing fad. Both decks and patios are classic outdoor living spaces that never go out of style. Decks are the original all-American backyard recreational spaces and no home is considered complete by many homeowners without a deck to enjoy. Patios, on the other hand, can be traced all the way back to Roman times when they were used within the home by incorporating courtyards into the center as a way to escape heat and collect rain water. In modern times, the two have become an inseparable way to gain beauty and function as an outdoor living space. One naturally lends itself to nurture off the other through the wood tones seen in decking and the elements of stone used in patios.

patio-firepit-deck-pergola

Decks and patios naturally blend together because of the allure of stone combined with wood.

With today’s outdoor living in mind, A patio can be added with a new or existing deck at any time. Adding a patio to your deck is a great way to spice it up and put that spark back into your outdoor entertaining and enhance the beauty in your backyard. A patio or hardscape will extend the function of your deck and provide additional areas for outdoor dining, seating and entertaining. Many of our deck and patio combinations are designed to include a fire pit, hardscape water feature or retaining/planting walls to add another dynamic to this already versatile space.

We recently completed a perfect example of a deck, pergola and patio combination in Englewood, OH. The homeowners chose to build this backyard masterpiece in stages as part of our phased building program. Our phased building program allows homeowners the freedom to build their ideal backyard in stages making it easier on their budget, and with less of an impact on lifestyle. Phased building consists of engineering, designing and building your outdoor space in phases so that future additions or amendments can be added easily. This is made possible by building with your future circumstances and the structural integrity of your project in mind. In this particular project, we built the shape of the deck to easily accommodate the addition of the patio in the future.

When we initially met with the homeowners to discuss the vision they had in mind for transforming their backyard,we came up with a design that would allow them to enjoy their backyard in progressive stages, building and enjoying the wooden deck and pergola as the first part of the stage, and as their budget allowed, proceeding with the paver patio as the final stage to complete the outdoor living space.

Like enjoying a book series by your favorite author, or tuning into an exciting sequel to your favorite movie, a successful outdoor living space design can also include the mystique of “to be continued.” Like with many of our completed phased building projects, there is usually room for additional outdoor living space in the future. These homeowners may decide at a later date to add an additional pergola over an area to facilitate a spa, or even a screened porch. With phased building your limits are only bound by your imagination! Once one space is completed you can enjoy all the outdoor living opportunities to come~
