Archadeck of Columbus Transforms This Westerville Low-To-Grade Patio and Stoop Into A Full-On Outdoor Oasis!
Archadeck of Columbus is your local all things outdoor living builder servicing central Ohio. Our specialty is making your outdoor living space(s) more functional, aesthetically pleasing and versatile in a way that speaks to your specific lifestyle. And, using this approach, is exactly what we did for these Westerville homeowners!
When we arrived for the initial design consultation at this Westerville, OH, property, we were astounded to see this beautiful home had little more than a narrow walk-out stoop that led down to the patio below. The scale of their existing outdoor structures was not in line with this beautiful and majestic home. Additionally, the existing design made access to the backyard from the back of the home difficult.
— Before, the homeowners could only access their backyard from the basement or the small stoop.
We transformed a cumbersome design into sophisticated and accommodating!
Not only did Archadeck of Columbus come up with a beautiful solution for these homeowners, but the new design is also in scale with that of the home. We created a multi-faceted outdoor living space that includes a spacious new custom deck loaded with all the bells and whistles along with an Eze Breeze three season room and an extension to their existing patio below — WOW! The completed space makes accessing the backyard a breeze and gives them plenty of room for a multitude of uses.
Let’s break the details of this design down:
The New Three Season Room
The new 3 season room was built using the Eze Breeze convertible porch enclosure system. This system adds protection from uncomfortable hot or cold outdoor temperatures, insects, debris such as dirt, pollen and other allergens, as well as the other negative elements often found outdoors. These Westerville homeowners tout the best part of having an Eze Breeze porch is that anytime they want to take advantage of a beautiful fall day, Indian summer or enjoy fresh breezes, the system can be slid out-of-the-way and they can use their new room as a screened porch.
There is more to love about this outdoor room, however, than just the convenience of having dual functionality! The finish details that were used in this space are irresistible. We used the popular shiplap for the interior walls and a pine tongue and groove ceiling which is painted to match the shiplap. The flooring for the room is the same low maintenance decking we used on the adjacent deck. We also finished the exterior of the room using the same Hardieplank siding of that found on the exterior of the home in order to give this space our trademark always been there appeal.
The New Deck
The new deck we designed as part of this outdoor living combo, is what we would call DECK-adent! Not only is the deck easy on the eyes, but it will also be easy on the homeowners to maintain. This is because the deck was constructed using TimberTech PRO Legacy decking which is ultra low maintenance and resists moisture damage as well as everyday stains and scratches. The homeowners chose the color Mocha from the collection. The deck posts are topped with tan vinyl post sleeves making this facet of the design low maintenance too. The deck railing is Westbury in black aluminum topped with a TimberTech PRO Legacy cap to match the decking which complements the decking and post sleeves perfectly.
Notice that Archadeck of Columbus included many custom features on the new deck. These include a custom bar/drink rail on a portion of the railing as well as integrated lighting along the railings and on the bar posts.
The Patio Extension
Last but certainly not least, Archadeck of Columbus extended the existing patio using the same Unilock pavers to match the ones already present. This extension gives the homeowners more room and creates a cohesive footprint for the entire project. As the area’s premier Unilock patio and hardscape installer, we recommend and have vast experience using this brand.
These Westerville clients are thrilled with their new updated outdoor living space! They now have a backyard that is easy to navigate and loaded with possibilities!
