Archadeck of Columbus helps consumers in the Columbus, OH area envision the perfect backyard for our 2013 Archadeck dream backyard makeover contest.
If you were given the chance to build the ultimate dream backyard in your backyard where would you begin? Archadeck of Columbus is proud to be part of the 2013 Archadeck dream backyard makeover contest where one lucky homeowner will win a dream backyard built by Archadeck and valued at up to $70,000. To enter, contestants have to submit a description of what their dream backyard would be. To help envision your dream backyard to enter the contest, here are some ideas for you.
Maybe your outdoor dream begins with a large porch. The porch can be screened, open or covered depending on how you want to live on your porch. Both covered and screened porches are great for adding living and dining areas to your outdoor space. With screened porches you get the added luxury of protection from insects and inclement weather. And, they can function much like an outdoor room. When you imagine your “dream porch” what type of roof does it have? Gable and hip roofs are among the most popular choices, but many times a shed roof can work great too. You roof style will depend highly on how the porch will connect to your home. Porches can be attached using either sidewall or roof tie-in connections and your roof style will be one key consideration in determining this. It is also possible to build a detached porch that functions much like a cabana, or pavilion. When envisioning your outdoor oasis it is also important to consider the orientation of the sun within your backyard. The location of the sun may mean a shaded structure such as a covered porch, or pergola would make the most sense and bring you the most enjoyment.
Your dream porch could spill into a rustic hardscape patio, maybe even a patio with a fire pit and seating wall. Hardscape features like seating, columns, and retaining walls can balance your outdoor space and finish them out to give you a more custom look. You may even consider a hardscape patio that has a little elevation to it so that you may step down into your backyard from the patio. Remember that it always the little things that can turn a good design into a great one when it comes to outdoor living structures.
Custom amenities like ceiling fans, lighting, and even wiring your outdoor space with speakers will enable you to further your outdoor enjoyment. Decks are always a solid choice for enhancing your backyard bliss. Adding features like planters, benches or even an outdoor kitchen to your deck will enhance the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your dream backyard. TimberTech has a deck designing page on their website that allows you to design your TimberTech deck by mixing their vast selection of color combinations of decking and railing to come up with the perfect deck to suit any taste.

Archadeck of Columbus is asked to contribute their time and expertise on a home makeover for Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
If you haven’t had a chance to tune in to catch an episode of “Extreme Makeover Home Edition“, on ABC then now is your chance. The show itself centers around a family that is nominated for an extreme home makeover. The recipients of this makeover are families that have experienced unfortunate circumstances or debilitating illness within the family, Often times these recipients are pillars of their community who have devoted their lives to improving the lives of those around them. These families shine through and are chosen to receive a much deserved extreme home makeover.
Being asked to participate in helping improve the lives of a family by a home makeover is truly an honor. Recently Archadeck of Columbus was given the chance to contribute their time and expertise for an upcoming Extreme Makeover Home Edition episode. Working on a job such as this can change your life forever, and it gives us an opportunity to be able to give back to the community and touch you in a way nothing else possibly can.
The day of the construction, we had the help of four people from Archadeck; Dennis Schaffer who is the regional franchise business developer and Seth Mitchell & Josh Kempf who are two of our best carpenters. The day began by dedicating our first four hours at the home assisting the interior house framers that needed some help. We were glad to give it, the spirit and emotion that was running through the whole construction site was like none we had ever experienced, and everyone present could feel it.
The whole makeover project took an unheard of total of 5 days, this is from the demolition phase all the way to the re-building. This event showed how a community can come together to complete what many would consider impossible or unthinkable and it shows what the human spirit is truly capable of when your driving force is that of humanity and humility.
The crew from Archadeck of Columbus worked 19 hours straight through their weekend to finish the job. Even though the crew was exhausted we wouldn’t trade this experience and we will always look forward to being honored enough to be asked to participate in endeavors such as this and give back what we can to our community.
The home itself is located near the Northeast side of Columbus, OH and the featured episode will be broadcast at Christmas time. We can’t give any more secrets than that. You will have to tune in to see and Archadeck of Columbus will be sure to post and share pictures following the show’s broadcast. Stay tuned…
