At Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio, we often refer to these combination spaces as deluxe outdoor living spaces. A custom deck with a hot tub and privacy wall, a patio with an outdoor kitchen and fire pit, the covered porch with an outdoor fireplace and a special area for watching TV … the list of combo possibilities is truly endless!
This outdoor living combination space in Xenia, OH, serves as the perfect example of a combination outdoor living space designed to create shade, privacy and beauty in a backyard space. This beautiful project was featured in housetrends magazine outdoor living titled Surviving the Great Outdoors with the focus of creating shade and privacy in your backyard. The project also earned Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio the prestigious NARI Contractor of the Year award.
When these homeowners contacted us, they had an existing covered back porch across the back of their home. Their goal was to create an outdoor living space that incorporates all the things they love about the indoors, outdoors, with areas for sitting, cooking, dining and any many other functions. Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio designed an outdoor oasis that combines varied textures and functional areas to provide these dynamics. The space also integrates their existing open back porch to the new deck via overhead structures, originality, and style!
The spacious deck is built with Fiberon decking. The decking is low-maintenance and is complemented by Fiberon composite railing in white, The curved design of the deck is not only appealing to the eye, but it also ensures a smooth transition as you pass from one space into another by leaving no sharp corners intruding into the deck proper. This beautiful deck also features Hadco low-voltage lighting which makes the space a pleasure to utilize in the evening.
The deck includes two stunning pergolas, one of which distinguishes the grilling area and the other lends shade to a designated sitting area. Each of the custom-fabricated white vinyl pergolas are flanked by graceful Georgian columns and feature innovative fixed louvers and interlocking slats to deliver optimum shade.
The benefits don’t end with the double pergolas; however, the design also includes a custom screened two-tiered roof vinyl gazebo with a cupola. This unique take on the traditional screened room delivers 360-degree views of the landscape. The gazebo also allows the homeowners to enjoy the outdoors within an insect-free, shaded space that provides protection from inclement weather.
