Imagine your backyard possibilities with Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio!

Kettering OH 2013 dream deck projectWe all daydream about how we imagine our perfect home would be. Whether you love cooking and imagine extending and transforming your kitchen into a culinary crescendo that would make Emeril Lagasse blush, or revamping your two-car into a dream garage worthy of charging admission to enter, we ALL have a vision of improving both the interior and exterior of our homes. Many homeowners have all the right intentions when moving forward with their home improvement endeavors, however, being able to realistically imagine the “vision” is something many struggle with.

With this in mind, Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio has put together a pictorial of before and after images of clients we have completed projects for. Being able to see the dramatic, side-by-side imagery will help homeowners, just like yourself, imagine the endless possibilities in your own backyard!

This sunroom and deck addition in Miami Township, OH, totally transformed this home. The space is designed with year-round comfort in mind and is versatile day to evening.

This Springfield, OH, project entailed adding an upper deck to the homeowner’s existing lower deck. Not only did this provide the shade benefits they had in mind, it also allowed more use of the second story. The new deck is built using premium pressure-treated wood and is designed to accept an under deck rain carriage system, such as DrySnap, in the future.

This Washington Township, OH, screened porch addition changed the whole way these homeowner’s live outdoors and enhanced the aesthetics of their home too!  When we initially met the homeowners for the design consultation they expressed the need for a better space to utilize their time outdoors. Their only outdoor space consisted of a concrete pad which they were using as a patio, but the sun and insects prevented them from enjoying it during the afternoon and around dusk.  The design we created includes a screened room built over the backyard’s existing pad. To further the functionality of the backyard we also built an open-air paver patio off the porch.

This project in Centerville, OH, proves the power of changing an existing outdoor space for the better. These homeowner’s already enjoyed using their existing screened porch for two out of the four seasons, but felt like they were still missing out on some prime usage. With our professional installation of a EZE Breeze system of vertical sliding panels of vinyl windows backed with screens, they do get more! When the weather is right, they can slide them down for a screened in porch, and pull them right back up when it’s raining!

In 2013, Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio was chosen to design and build the deck for the 2nd place winner for the Dream Backyard Makeover contest, which was sponsored by Archadeck Outdoor Living and Belgard Hardscapes. As you can see from the before and after pictures, which were part of the entry to this contest, we took this backyard from dull to dazzling!

“Let this be the year that Archadeck makes your outdoor living dreams come true”

TimberTech 2015 product catalogDid you happen to see the new TimberTech synthetic decking catalog for this year? If so, you may have noticed the rich array of images of decks built with TimberTech decking. Archadeck of West Central and Southwest Ohio is proud to have one of our beautiful decks featured within the catalog. One of the featured decks within the catalog, and on the cover, is the second place winner of the Dream Backyard Makeover contest, sponsored through Archadeck, TimberTech decking and Belgard hardscapes, and built by us.

In case you aren’t familiar with the Dream Backyard Makeover contest, Archadeck Outdoor Living (North America‘s largest and most trusted designer and builder of outdoor living spaces),  Belgard Hardscapes (North America‘s leading manufacturer of hardscape paver products) and TimberTech )leading manufacturer of composite decking and railing materials), sponsored a contest via Facebook which ran from February 1, 2013 through April 22, 2013. Contestants could enter to win one of three outdoor living space prizes by submission of a photo along with a two-hundred word description of why they felt their backyard was the most deserving. Archadeck Facebook fans then voiced their opinions on the most deserving backyard and the winners were selected by a panel of judges and Facebook fan votes, being announced in May of that same year. The contest’s second place winner, Stephanie Carll and her family, was chosen from hundreds of entries and is located in Kettering, OH. The Carll’s received a new TimberTech deck designed and built by Archadeck of West Central & Southwest Ohio. Here is the submission that led to being the recipient of the second place award:

Photo submitted with the Carll’s entry:

“My family and I are fortunate to live in a wonderful neighborhood surrounded by beautiful trees and great neighbors, but our fixer-upper leaves much to be desired. We recently purchased this home with stars in our eyes, creativity in our hearts and a shoestring budget. The first words that came out of my husband’s mouth when we were viewing the backyard with our realtor were: ‘someday this will be the most amazing spot for a deck.’ Our dream is magnificent, but our reality is daunting. The current state of our backyard makes me cringe every day when I open the curtains, or chase down my toddler and tell him ‘no no, you can’t go back there.’ Our dream deck would replace vines, a pile of concrete, construction debris, and other unsightly features that make the space unusable. We envision a tiered outdoor living space where we can grill, unwind, entertain, get to know our neighbors, let our toddler out to play, and enjoy the natural beauty of our neighborhood. We have a blank canvas on an amazing lot that is full of possibilities. We just need help to turn our dreams for this space into reality!”

And, without further ado, here is a look at the “dream” deck we created for these Kettering, OH, homeowners, because a picture is worth a thousand words:

Kettering OH TT dream deckThe deck we designed and built for the Carll’s was built with TimberTech Earthwood Evolutions Legacy decking in Mocha with a parting board, inlay and picture-framed border built from TimberTech Legacy decking in Pecan. We designed the deck using spacious radius steps to double as additional seating in the space, along with a custom built-in bench seat. The deck railing is beautiful, low-maintenance TimberTech Radiance Rail. The deck is designed with evening enjoyment in mind too with TimberTech post, riser and module deck lighting throughout. We also added AZEK composite pavers to the area just under the hammock for aesthetics and to add dimension to the space.

 

We also want to mention what a “dream” the Carll’s were to work with on the project. They are wonderful, kind people who were truly appreciative of the transformation we were so fortunate to be a part of in their backyard. As part of coming up with this specific design we took the proximity of the existing road in correlation to their home, and providing a “safe” spot for the kids to enjoy the backyard into account. The new space has given them a new outlook on their outdoor living lifestyle and renewed their love for their neighborhood. The entire experience was fulfilling beyond on our wildest dreams!
