If you’re familiar with the saying “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” then you get a sense of what working with Archadeck of Akron is like.
This proverbial phrase is often used to encourage optimism and a positive can-do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune. In Archadeck language, that means turning non-functional
outdoor structures into stunning, fully functional masterpieces.
The two outdoor project transformations Archadeck of Akron completed on this New Franklin home are perfect examples of the most tasteful visual “lemonade” you’ll ever experience.
FRONT ENTRANCE TRANSFORMS INTO THE MOST WELCOMING ENTRANCE EVER
I can’t help but feel sad each time I look at the snow-covered entrance with the rickety stairs leading to the front door. Oh … the humanity!
Front entry before Archadeck began the transformation.
Now for the good news. We’ll never have to look at it again.
After completed front entry transformation.
Our recreation solution delivered a majestic covered porch on the front of their home to greet both family members and guests – not to mention how thrilled the UPS delivery man is now to deliver packages!
The homeowners told us during their design consultation that they wanted to add a sheltered space to the front of their home, along with multi-functionality. And more than that, they wanted a space that improved the home’s curb appeal and aesthetics, too.
ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE – ARCHADECK STYLE
The newly designed porch features a beautiful gabled roof with beam and truss details.
Whereas the original front entry was small and inadequate in providing shelter for guests.
Our Archadeck Outdoor Living design team changed that, and now the new front entry protects and welcomes guests in exquisite style. More than that, now the homeowners have ample room to enjoy the porch for themselves!
Just take a look at how amazing the front porch now looks with all their seasonal décor! WOW!
The materials used for this transformation are mostly all pine, with a gorgeous tongue and groove pine ceiling – a memorable way to say “Welcome Home.”
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL, FOLKS
If you stroll along to the rear of the home, you’ll discover another Archadeck transformation. The pitiful pressure-treated stairs and rear stoop have been removed and replaced with a backyard deck and patio approach that mirrors the level of excellence achieved in the front of the home.
As you can see, the useable area leading out from the rear kitchen door is significantly greater than its predecessor. Crafted out of pressure treated wood and stained to augment the rear landscape, black aluminum balusters were used for added definition of this new backyard space.
TURNING OUTDOOR LIVING WANTS AND WISHES INTO REALIZED DREAMS
