These Green Valley homeowners had the same dilemma of hitting a design roadblock as many other homeowners looking to enhance their backyard experience. When we met with these Greensboro residents to discuss bringing their backyard vision to life, we learned that they had called several people before us. Their backyard presented a difficult building situation because the backyard sloped away from the home. The other builders they contacted were not able to relate their vision, nor were they able to give them the plans for exactly what they had in mind in lieu of the layout of their existing space.This is a concern we have heard before from our clients. They will contact other builders and express their goals and often builders will indicate that “it can’t be done”. This is one of the elements Archadeck of the Piedmont Triad takes pride in. In nearly every case, it can be done but just takes more vision, experience, and forethought.
Our first step was meeting with the homeowners. During our initial consultation they expressed their desire for a deck that came out from their existing retaining wall which would then wrap around the house. They also wanted the new deck space to be structured to become part of a future screened porch. Their existing space included a carport with a more open driveway beyond the carport with uncovered concrete. The bare concreted area also encompassed the brick retaining wall which was unusable backyard space.
Our next step involved putting together a plan for the homeowners which included not only the deck they wanted, but also the screened porch they initially thought would be a future project. We were able to design a plan that included a porch and deck combination space. Upon seeing the plan we drew up for them, the homeowners were thrilled and went with us to build both the deck and porch altogether in one phase.
The final step was the much anticipated construction. The deck was built with pressure treated wood and includes a stunning privacy screen on one side, black aluminum pickets, and a railing wide enough to set a drink on. The deck ties into the retaining wall just as the Green Valley homeowners had in mind. We tied the gable roof for the screened porch into the carport roof flawlessly, which is something many builders cannot achieve. The interior of the screened porch features a beautiful ply bead cathedral ceiling, electrical outlets and a ceiling fan for added comfort.
The homeowners are simply elated with their backyard. We were able to accomplish what other builders told them wasn’t possible- making the backyard of their dreams a reality! Contact Archadeck of the Piedmont Triad to bring your backyard vision to life today (336) 664 – 1332
