Interior of the lakeside pavilion on Lake Murray, SC.
Archadeck of Central South Carolina just completed a terrific project for a homeowner residing on beautiful Lake Murray. We started with only an existing concrete patio, a roof, and an outdoor fireplace that offered stunning views of the water, but no protection from insects and changing weather conditions. The family’s goal was to create an inviting space that could be used year-round so they could take advantage of entertaining with friends at any time.
It was important to the homeowner that the outdoor feel be maintained with the new design so that hanging out in the space still had the feeling like everyone inside was on vacation and not feeling like they were stuck indoors. They were going after an airy, open resort-type mood so that it felt very much like a getaway.
Before Archadeck of Central SC began the transformation of this space.
We were able to work with the existing structure to save the client a bunch of money. We simply added walls, doors, and sliding glass windows to create the vibe and feel of an outdoor room while everything is protected inside so that it safeguards from harsh weather and nasty biting critters. Everyone can enjoy dining, relaxing, and even watching TV from the big screen mounted above the fireplace’s mantel (and hidden behind doors so that it can’t be seen when not in use). The owners wanted the equivalent of a lakeside living room, and that’s what Archadeck of Central South Carolina gave them.
The expanse of low-maintenance vinyl windows does not hide the views of the surrounding trees, landscape, and lake. On beautiful days the windows slide open to take advantage of the cool breezes and sounds of outdoor wildlife. Even if the weather gets wet or wild, the family can sit nestled inside while still enjoying the outdoor feeling thanks to all the glass. There is tons of room for seating inside in separate zones all within the same space. Lots of guests can be simultaneously dining, playing board games, or relaxing on the couch watching the ball game. It’s also the perfect spot for a big party when celebration time arises.

The entire structure is made of materials that require minimal upkeep so the family can enjoy their time in their new outdoor room instead of maintaining it. It also fits perfectly into the landscape and is in a similar style to the neighboring homes so that it blends beautifully into the area.
