Skip to main content


The Masterpiece Difference

Colorado is one of the most beautiful states to live in the country, but it's unpredictable weather patterns and seasons keep most people from enjoying their outdoor space. We have over 36 years of experience designing and building Outdoorliving Spaces that solve the seasonal and weather challenges of Colorado.

We are experts in the latest maintenance-free composites and steel forever frame systems. Relax and take comfort that we will create an Outdoorliving Space that’s perfect for you and your family. We will provide extraordinary service from start to finish.

The story of Masterpiece Outdoorliving

Garth Hystad

Garth Hystad has become the premier designer of his time. Many of his greatest designs were featured on the popular hit tv show, Mega Decks, which premiered on the DIY Network. His love and vision for making the outdoors come to life continue to grow today. His proudest moment has been watching his son, Brandon Hystad, blossom into an extraordinary man and one of the best outdoor living designers in the country.

These are the faces behind each Masterpiece. The creativity, the craftsmanship, the labor of all our projects! Masterpiece Outdoorliving is a family run business. Garth, our founder, and his son Brandon possess an undeniable zeal for creating extraordinary Outdoor Spaces, but the driving force behind their passion is knowing that their creations beckon everyone into the great outdoors they love so much.

This pursuit has transformed lives and the meaning of Outdoor Living altogether.
