Year in Review: Let Our Amazing 2018 Outdoor Living Projects Inspire You

If 2018 was as good for you as it was for us, then we are all poised to soar in 2019! As the new year’s calendar pages are already turning, we want to briefly revisit our favorite projects of the past year. We hope these glimpses of our most spectacular 2018 projects provide inspiration for you!

Three Season Room and More in Fort Worth, TX!

These Fort Worth, Texas, homeowners were looking for more use of an outdoor living space. One that they could use for entertaining or private relaxation. Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake not only provided a useable space, but multiple areas and custom amenities abound. With only a builder grade patio for outdoor enjoyment, they enlisted our expertise to give them more – so much more!

The design includes a spacious 3-season room with an outdoor fireplace along with a spacious patio and outdoor kitchen area. They’re perfect for relaxing quietly – and perfect for entertaining friends. If you don’t already have one in your outdoor living space, let us design and build the perfect outdoor fireplace or fire pit for your home.

Southlake, TX, Combination Bi-level Deck, Outdoor Kitchen and Softscape

These Southlake, TX, homeowners called on deck builder Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake to design and build an elaborate deck and outdoor kitchen adjacent to their pool. Our design included a bi-level deck with Fortress low-maintenance composite decking impervious to moisture. The deck offers areas for preparing food, dining, lounging and gazing into the homeowners’ hypnotic fire table.


To complete this functional and beautiful outdoor living space, we designed and installed a surrounding softscape of shrubs. We even included a seating wall that serves as a planter. What does this tell you? Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake can do it all! Whatever it takes to create your ideal outdoor living space … don’t hold back. Tell us everything it will take to make your outdoor areas more functional and more enjoyable.

Heath, TX, Combination Patio, Poolside Cabana, Outdoor Kitchen and Outdoor Fireplace

These homeowners in Heath, TX, wanted a deluxe, free-standing poolside cabana with all of the comforts of home. Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake designed a covered patio with a large outdoor fireplace, big TV screen and comfortable seating. Outside of the covered area, their patio includes an outdoor kitchen with bar seating, grill, smoker, griddle and refrigerator. This entire project features the beauty of Oklahoma flagstone. While this combination outdoor living space gives you so many more ways to enjoy a pool, you don’t actually need a pool to enjoy the other structures in this project.

Heath, TX, Combination Covered Patio, Outdoor Kitchen, Custom Fire Pit, Waterfall, Pool Improvements, Landscaping and Fence

In this elaborate combination project, you can see that if you have a pool but don’t love the hardscape surrounding it, Archadeck of Northeast Dallas-Southlake can change that for you! We completely redesigned the hardscape for these clients in Heath, TX. Instead of looking at boulders, they now gaze at waterfalls and fire bowls around their pool. This project features the rich beauty of Lueders stone.


These homeowners opted for a fire pit instead of an outdoor fireplace. A semi-circular stone seating wall facing the fire pit lets you know how much they enjoy a fire pit! What you learn from this project is we don’t always have to build everything from scratch. In some cases, we can upgrade or retrofit elements of your original outdoor living space to achieve the effects you desire. In this project, we not only reconfigured the pool surround, we redesigned a patio cover and second-story porch cover to tie existing structures in with newly-added elements.

As you can see, this swoon-worthy backyard project in Heath TX literally has it all!

Your Takeaway for 2019: If You Can Dream It, We Can Build It!

Do you sense a theme? Combination outdoor living spaces are our favorite projects for two reasons. First, they allow us to flex our creative muscles as we work with you to design a complex project pulling together a variety of materials. It’s like putting together a puzzle where we strive to make the most of the way each element of the project impacts and complements the others. Second, we love how a combination project increases our client’s enjoyment of their outdoor living space. Over and over we see that each multi-faceted combination project is so much more than the sum of its parts. Sometimes it amazes us just how true that is.
