Here the owner wanted more sitting space other than their porch. They also wanted to be able to plant climbing vines around the deck. A future natural privacy wall! Great idea! The open center is for viewing the sky. Taking away a part of the handrail from the porch makes an easy transition to the deck and the view is not obstructed with typical wood spindles. Rather, there are black tube ballusters which need no maintenance and last forever. As you can see, they practically disappear as you look to the yard. There is low lighting hidden under the surround trellis, which gives off a soft ambient light at night. You can see a before and after on this website, plus additional pictures of this deck on this website. The owner couldn't be happier!
Even the smallest of changes in design, as pictured here can make a world of difference. In the picture, the darker portion of the deck is the original. Total crampville! The owner wanted to continue the deck out to the edge of the deck. Good, but, when we suggested adding the bump out to the right? Enough said! What a difference for not a whole bunch more of money!
We are excited that we are entering into what looks like to be a fantastic year economically! We are already lining up work and are looking forward to hearing from you to get started on your outdoor living project that you have been waiting for times like these to build. Even though my work is customized you just may find your project may be more affordable than you think. Give me a call and let's talk!
With cooler weather coming, it is time to get your deck built in order to enjoy the cooler weather and watch the leaves change their colors! We like working in cooler weather, too! Winter doesn't stop us, either. Call me today so your project can be done now and have it ready for any season!
This deck started off as a simple rectangle - the usual. The owner wanted just a little more pizzazz. What better way to add the WOW factor than to include wrapped steps that are not only awesome looking, but, are functional. Now the owner can access the deck from different angles than just straight steps. Classy!
The days are getting longer, the sun is shining brighter and the temperature is rising! Jobs are quickly lining up and pushing opportunity out weeks to start new jobs. You don't want to miss out on having that new deck to enjoy the outdoors during the upcoming season. Call us now to get in the line up!
These home owners had a drawing of this screened porch for years, dreaming that one day it would come to fruition. With a few added design touches that we worked through with them, the dream drawing is now their dreamy screened porch and even better than they ever imagined!
This Pool Deck was once again a project born of necessity due to the limitations of earth grades. Under this deck is a steep decline. The deck is the perfect compliment to the very nice job the pool company did. BTW, perfect is my favorite seven letter word!
This year has been very rewarding for us..., not so much financially (because I do so much more for the same cost or less than others), but artistically. As you can see from this pic taken in the late afternoon, the pergola converts this hot spot into a cooler outdoor living space perfect for sipping pina coladas! BTW, I saw a competitors design for this home and was totally "amused!"
This website was built by my beautiful and talented wife and me. We hope that you find it easy to use and helpful. Thank you for visiting us here at Charlestowne Decks and Gazebos of Richmond.
