Gone are the days of wiping landscapes of all that made them beautiful. Whether you’re in an old home or a new one, your hope is to leave beautiful old trees in place to enjoy as part of your outdoor living oasis. In this deck in Pine Knolls in Kernersville NC, we did just that.
Often times your beloved tree is close to your home and would intrude upon the space that makes sense for your new deck. Or you may want to integrate your favorite tree into your space. Archadeck of Piedmont Triad can make that happen for you. Forget the Treehouse Masters on Animal Planet. Feel like you have a private treehouse right in your own backyard.
This Kernersville NC deck design integrated a lot more into this deck than just the tree. Take a look at the decking boards and how they run diagonally toward the parting board in the middle. Archadeck of the Piedmont Triad does this for two reasons – strength and beauty. Not only do decking boards run at a diagonal add visual appeal and a sense a high-end custom design to your deck, but this also makes the construction even stronger. In addition, we’ve integrated a parting board into the design. What do you do if the space you are building is longer than the board you are building with? You have a couple options including butting the two boards up to each other. But, the better design solution is having the boards meet at a central board. The design is stunning.
The deck was build with pressure-treated pine wood. The owners can enjoy the natural color variations that genuine wood provides.
This deck in Pine Knolls is elevated off the ground to meet the elevation of the home. You can see that the grade of the yard slopes down quite a bit. By adding the white lattice skirting to the deck, it creates a beautifully finished look and also provides cover for any storage you want to keep under the deck.
You can see that this deck is anything but square. The corner near the stairs is at an angle adding even more visual appeal to the deck.
Today’s decks are more than outdoor spaces to house a couple chairs and perhaps a small table. They truly act as outdoor rooms. Many of our customers are looking for decks, porches, and/or patios that are large enough to accommodate multiple spaces such as accommodating an eating area and a seating area. Regardless of how this family decorates this deck, the best part of it will certainly include being one with nature.
