Retro deck re-design and build in Macon’s Country Club area

There are a lot of great things from the 70’s that have stood the test of time, or at least see brief resurgences as time marches on. Coveted interior design trends, such as wood focal walls, brass accents, and shag rugs can be seen in brand new homes of today. For this 70’s home, however, one thing had to go – the wood deck. Hold on to your bell bottoms and see this 70’s deck brought into the new millennium!

Backyard deck with black chairs

When we first saw this sloping backyard space, the old deck had already been demolished down to its steel beam structure. The homeowner at first planned to re-build the deck on his own but later decided to call in the reinforcements at “Archadeck of Central Georgia”: to design and build a new low-maintenance deck.

The deck structure that was

The Architect that originally designed this home and deck, added a strong steel beam supporting structure. Though it outlived the wooden deck, it was in need of improvements. After evaluating the state of the steel structure, we found that it would be costlier to refurbish it than tear it down, and so we did. We cut the steel into manageable pieces with a torch, and carried it away for disposal. We then replaced it with a sturdy wood support structure.

An old “Macon deck renewed and improved

These days, homeowners see the true value in replacing an old wooden deck with materials that will not only outlast the former, but offer the benefits of low maintenance. For this Macon deck, we used beautiful TimberTech decking in Antique Palm for a natural wood finish. We also concocted a larger deck design to better accommodate this family’s outdoor living preferences in their beautiful, natural backyard setting. Since the brick landing was in perfect structural shape, and obviously was designed to fit the aesthetic of the home, we planned the angular shape of the deck to accommodate it.
