Our Redecking Project in Stathams Landing Fits This Warner Robins Backyard to a TEE!

Archadeck of Central Georgia designs outdoor living spaces for all types of properties.

This neighborhood is situated on the public Landings Golf Club, which has an expansive clubhouse, a 27-hole course, and the largest putting green in middle GA. The home where our project took place backs up to the golf course itself.

The homeowners had an existing wooden deck with many boards in bad shape. The style of the deck was also quite dated with built-in seating instead of railing. This was typical of the period in which it was originally built.

Our goal was to bring the design of the deck up-to-date, bringing it up to current deck construction codes and open up the view. In addition to modernizing the space, we also utilized low maintenance materials. This will allow the homeowners to focus on enjoying the deck without the constant worry of maintenance.

Archadeck of Central GA was able to keep and use the original deck’s framing on this project. We reworked the beams in order to accommodate for the continued integration of the beautiful trees in the landscape. We removed the bench seating, added wider stairs and added railing to one end according to code.

The new decking boards are Fiberon and the railing is Fortress iron panels. We also finished the entire deck to have no wood peeking out with white PVC risers and edge band.

The homeowners are elated with their new and improved backyard deck! The new design opens up the view and makes the space feel larger, airier and an extension of the landscape.  If you are ready to expand the potential of your existing deck, or add a new deck from scratch, contact Archadeck of Central GA today!

This Macon, GA, Wheelchair Ramp Proves Functional CAN be Beautiful!

If necessity is the Mother of invention then why does it seem most wheelchair accessibility ramps are an eyesore?

ramp-deck-Macon GARealizing the purpose of a wheelchair ramp is to provide a safe, functional transition from one space to another for wheelchair users, doesn’t necessarily mean sacrificing the aesthetics of your home. At Archadeck of Central Georgia, we know the importance in maintaining the curb appeal of your home and retaining your home’s value.  One of our most recent wheelchair ramp projects in Macon, GA, serves as the perfect example of addressing necessity while maintaining beauty.

This homeowner is a valued return customer of ours as we have completed two different outdoor living projects for her in the past. As her circumstances have changed over time, she needed a wheelchair ramp added to the front of her home. The temporary ramp she was using had become an eyesore and we were contacted to come up with a more permanent and complimentary solution.

Archadeck of Central GA came up with an elegant permanent wheelchair ramp using the same shape as the temporary ramp. We used Fiberon low maintenance decking in Rosewood for the floor and black Fortress powder-coated railing. We also installed composite cladding to hide the framing. The cladding matches the red brick facade of the existing home for a seamless appearance.

If you are in search of a wheelchair ramp that looks and functions the part for the front, side or back entry of your home, contact us. Our timeless outdoor living designs increase the beauty and function of your home. We can customize your design based on your specific needs.

This Beaver Glen lake house deck delivers form, beauty and function in one outdoor living space.

Take a look at this picture. Then, close your eyes and imagine the smell of the air, the feeling of the sun, and the sound of the breeze. Now take a look at the picture just below and ask yourself if that is where you had imaged being? You can see how the right design can change the way you perceive the experience. Why squander your backyard experience because of a poorly designed outdoor living space?”

Before Lakehouse deck
Existing deck before we began the project.

The story of this Warner Robins homeowner’s lake house deck began when they contacted Archadeck of Central Georgia to provide a quote for a larger deck. Their existing deck was not only small; it also only provided access to the deck via their bedroom which had become an imposition when entertaining guests outdoors. The Beaver Dam residents wanted a larger deck that would afford them a sitting area as well as an area to grill and dine outside. A top priority for  the homeowners also included a deck that could be accessed from the home’s interior living room for all to easily enjoy.

The old deck had been built with two steps down from the door of the bedroom entrance which needed amending. An important design prerequisite included the homeowners’ wish for no stairs to ascend from the deck onto the ground. This was intended to address two reasons; 1) the sloping ground below would make adding stairs difficult 2) for security reasons.

Archadeck of Central GA went to work on designing a plan that would cover all the bases of a deck that provided the living space the homeowner’s yearned for to enjoy their breathtaking view. With some design changes from the homeowners we developed a new plan together. Then we took down the entirety of the existing deck and started afresh in building the new, larger deck of their dreams.

After completing the deck we removed the existing window within the living room/den area of the home and replacing it with a double door which provides easy access to the new deck. The new double doors happen to be perfectly in line with the home’s front door revealing a clear view of the lake from the moment you enter the home. Upon removal of the old deck we noted it had not been flashed properly so we replaced the damage siding for the homeowner as well. We built the new deck using Fiberon Pro-Tect decking which offers all the low-maintenance benefits and quality at an affordable price to keep costs down. The color we used is Gray Birch from the Pro-Tect line which looks elegant paired with the Fortress Iron black metal pickets we used.

The finished project delivers a large, quality built, low-maintenance deck that provides incredible views to the lake. The new deck also guarantees convenient access and traffic flow from the main living area onto the deck making entertaining and everyday use effortless to say the least. These Beaver Glen homeowners are elated with their new deck and the difference it has made to the way they live in their home!
