No one wants to settle for less than what they want or deserve. This includes the ideal image of what your anticipated outdoor structure will look like, and also how it will function. This custom designed and built outdoor fireplace and patio surround in Woodstock is a fine specimen of what entails a totally custom solution to your outdoor endeavor.
When these Woodstock homeowners approached us they had been in search of a patio builder that could deliver a quality built outdoor structure that complimented their home and landscape, provided functionality and beauty. Together, with the input of the homeowner, we were able to come up with a magnificent well-rounded design of a custom outdoor fireplace built from superior Belgard stack stone, as well as a custom paver patio surround that flanks the fireplace. The entire structure has custom characteristics, from the unique shape of the fireplace to the custom mantel. The use of the patio surround creates the feel of an “outdoor living room” and invites you to cozy up around the fire in much the same way a comfy, relaxed family room on the interior of the home does.
When you make the decision to use Archadeck of Greater Atlanta to design and construct any facet of their outdoor oasis, you can rest assured the silver lining comes with owning a quality built, well planned, structurally above average, and above all truly custom outdoor living structure.

Dogs by nature are companion animals. Throughout history dogs have been touted as “man’s best friend”. Dogs play a crucial role in our lives, and are considered to be part of the family unit. At Archadeck, we are seeing a trend with our owners asking for customized dog gates for their outdoor living areas such as decks, porches and patios. The dog gate serves a dual purpose for Fido and dog owners.
Dog deck gates can give you and your dog all the benefits of enjoying the outdoors, while having complete control over their surroundings. Let’s say for example your family and the neighbors family are enjoying a day by your backyard pool. The only dilemma is that the dog keeps jumping in the pool. In an effort to appease your guests, and to make everyone happy you opt to enclose your dog inside the house for the afternoon. This means that Fido will miss the exercise, fresh air and camaraderie of being part of the family. With a custom installed dog deck gate, you can opt to keep Fido in the backyard but away from the pool deck area, or keep him in close proximity to the action within the deck. The choice is yours.
Dog gates offer safety, security and the convenience of having the freedom to spend more time with your pampered pooch. Our dog gates can be custom built alongside your deck’s railing system, so they offer functionality as well as aesthetic appeal. Not only do the gates offer a safe haven for your dog to take in the wonder of the great outdoors, many of our gates have become a choice for homeowners with small children as well. The gates can keep your toddler from straying away from the security of the backyard deck while you are busy cooking those hot dogs on the grill. This feature offers homeowners peace of mind, and more family-time for outdoor living enjoyment. It’s a win, win situation.

Many times it is difficult for a homeowner to find a contractor whose strength is both in building outdoor structures and in the art of outdoor design. It is an even rarer occurrence when you find an expert tradesman that can do both and be able to go the extra mile by translating the homeowner’s character and personality into the design itself. For this homeowner, we were able to translate not only the customer’s mental image of what he desired but also the heartfelt emotions and fond memories that he wanted to convey and enjoy through the design.
This homeowner’s beloved father was an avid outdoors-man whom recently passed away. As a tribute to his father he wanted to create a backyard that would reflect who he was as well as tie in things that his father would have enjoyed within the space. This structure is meant to serve the homeowner’s love of entertaining but also to pay homage to his late father. As simple as this task may seem, there were obstacles that had to be overcome before we could break ground.
The situation was that the homeowner had a small existing 10×12 “basic” deck, as well as a 10′ slope across the backyard from left to right making it hard to access. This lack of accessibility, plus the slope would entail adding stone work to gain better access to the area and to better utilize the space, but be able to work with the existing slope of the backyard. He was looking for a contractor that could provide both facets of the construction by building a new deck and installing stonework. We really enjoy doing it all, from decks, patios, outdoor rooms, porches and stone and hardscapes. We were able to design an outdoor area that harmonizes with his existing house and the special circumstances present in the slope of the lot.
We took down the homeowner’s existing deck and replaced it with a water-tight deck that is about three times the size of the old one. We also created a stunning stone staircase to gain access around the 10′ hill. The stone staircase also descends into a beautiful flagstone patio and stone wall. The finished space underneath the water tight deck created a breathtaking room downstairs offering privacy and a place of sanctuary. We finished the structure with can lights, two ceiling fans for those warm summer days, sconces on the deck posts and lighting going up the stairwell for safety and ambiance.
The homeowner was quite pleased that we had incorporated so many facets into the design and posted a review on Kudzu.
“Creative and detail-oriented professionals. I am very pleased with the challenging project that Archadeck just completed for me. They took down my existing deck, and built a much larger deck (15′ x 28′) with a complete under deck system and beautiful flagstone patio underneath. The project was complicated by the steep grade of the hillside in my backyard, which they overcame by incorporating heavy stepping-stones and garden lights seamlessly tying in both functionality and aesthetics. While the project did take a few weeks longer than anticipated, I feel the results were more than worth it. Sol and his team went out of their way to block off time with me for material selection and creative dialogue regarding my project vision. If you are looking for professionals that don’t take short cuts and strive for perfection, I highly recommend Archadeck to you.”
By overcoming all the obstacles at hand, we were able to work with the individual characteristics of the “lay of the land” so to speak, to create an unforgettable structure for this homeowner that encompasses everything he wanted and more, and everything his father would have wanted as well.
