An Ample Macon GA Deck Becomes so Much More!

Archadeck of Central Georgia transformed part of this spacious deck into a covered porch with outdoor fireplace and the results are just beautiful.

These Macon, Georgia homeowners had a grand deck already, but they imagined themselves getting more time and enjoyment out of their outdoor living space with a few indoor creature comforts. This family opted to build a porch atop a portion of their existing deck and had a few criteria in mind to produce a winning result. Archadeck of Central GA is pleased to have provided them with their vision of the ideal outdoor living room!

— This Macon GA deck offered ample outdoor living space, but no sun protection.

Custom deck conversions require more than a little consideration.

Archadeck of Central GA had to first establish the confirmation of the existing deck structure. Fortunately, the deck had great bones, and with a little reinforcement, was ready to accept the weight of the porch roof. It is not always possible to simply build atop an existing structure. You can depend on Archadeck of Central GA to ensure that a deck-to-porch conversion is done with the utmost care, attention to detail, and safety. We will inspect the whole of your outdoor structure and bring your conversion project to fruition.

The mission: provide shade, add comfort, and space to hang a TV.

Who doesn’t want to spend cooler months outdoors in the fresh GA air, watching football, or hosting a movie night with friends and family? Our first initiative was to give this family much needed sun protection by adding a porch roof. Done! Secondly, we aimed to make them more comfortable by adding a gorgeous wood burning/gas start fireplace and custom mantel. No problem! These homeowners now have a perfect gathering and relaxation area right outside their back door, where they can enjoy watching TV, visiting with friends, or cozying up with a good book or the weekend newspaper.

— This grand fireplace creates a perfect spot for gathering with friends and family or private relaxation. These homeowners even have the luxury of watching hummingbirds from their new porch cover!

Given that building guidelines are dictated by the family’s homeowners’ association, we had to build a custom porch that strictly adhered to their standards. The covered porch had to appear original to the home, and we worked diligently to match new materials to existing and add new materials that fit the style of the home. We built the porch roof with substantial open rafters and trimmed the gables with beadboard to match the mantel and reduce TV glare. On the exterior of the fireplace, we applied hard coat stucco and professional painting was provided to perfectly match to the existing home.

— You’re not seeing double – that’s two perfectly-matched chimneys!

These Macon, GA homeowners had a plan in mind to get more quality use out of their outdoor living space. They took our porch design and building expertise to task and called in a little help from our friends at American Lighting and Design to produce a custom beadboard mantel to hang the TV. The project was completed upon the approval of their HOA, and Archadeck of Central GA ensured that all guidelines were followed to achieve the approved design. We wish these satisfied clients many happy hours in their new outdoor living space!
