You know the old adage about hindsight being the equivalent of 20/20 vision? In the case of this outdoor living space design, these Lagrange County homeowners had the hindsight part covered, and much more.
When Archadeck of Fort Wayne, IN, initially visited the lakeside home it was devoid of any outdoor space to enjoy the views, or the scenery of the lake. The ambiance and natural beauty of their surroundings was one of the main reasons they chose this location as their getaway. Our job was to provide a cost-effective, low maintenance solution within a smart outdoor design that would allow the homeowners to make the most of their time at the lakehouse.
The space we came up with includes a low maintenance wrap around deck flanked by a stunning white low maintenance vinyl pergola that provides shade from the afternoon sun. The deck is built with Trex Select decking and secured with hidden fasteners for a seamless finish. Trex decking is designed with longevity and requires minimal upkeep. We also installed TamRail composite railing, in white, and white poly lattice underneath to keep any uninvited critters out. The finished project is clean, crisp and compliments the home and the view.
Instead of installing stairs to side door, these homeowners were forward thinking and realized their needs could change as they grow older. As a result, they opted to install a ramp on the side from the rear of the property to the door in lieu of a traditional steps.
Because the houses in this lakeside community are situated close together, Archadeck of Fort Wayne had to work closely with the Planning Commission to develop a plan that incorporated an ADA specification ramp, with a wrap around deck, stairs to the lake and a pergola that maximized the usable space.
The homeowners absolutely love their new space and the ease of access it provides now, and in the years ahead with many lazy afternoons and beautiful sunsets in their future!
