An elevated deck is perfect for the back of this Huntington, IN, home on a sloped lot. When the homeowners step out their back door, they aren’t on the ground, they’re up in the air! It’s fitting that this deck and pergola combination has a fairytale quality about it. The ornamental touches on the pergola convey the feeling that something special is about to happen here.
The homeowners wanted a statement piece for outdoor living enjoyment and to complement the back of their home. Archadeck of Fort Wayne’s custom design for this beautiful deck with pergola satisfies those criteria and more.
Huntington IN Covered Deck Perfect for Back Yard with a View
For their new covered deck, our clients chose low-maintenance TimberTech composite decking in two contrasting shades. We built the field of the deck with the Tigerwood color from the TimberTech PRO Legacy collection. For the contrasting picture framing and parting boards, we used the Whitewashed Cedar color, also from the TimberTech PRO Legacy collection. These composite decking boards are capped with polymer on all four sides for superior moisture resistance.
A pair of matching benches continues the deck’s motif of two contrasting tones. Archadeck designed and built these custom benches for the clients using the same TimberTech decking boards. At first glance, they may appear to be part of the deck, but in fact the benches can be moved around where needed.
The black aluminum railing from the Westbury Riviera Series is low-maintenance as well. The double top rail is a nice decorative touch with a Craftsman feel. These thin black balusters allow a clear view of the outdoors.
Whimsical Pergola Completes this Deck and Pergola Combination
This unique pergola over the deck reflects a whimsical style and suggests the homeowners relish the sheer joy of being outdoors. The arches from post to post, latticework infill, and decorative ogee end cuts on the pergola’s rafters together provide an ornamental canopy for the deck. The keystone piece at the apex of each arch is a special touch, too. The pergola provides shade on sunny days and a playful ambiance every day of the year.
On the practical side, we installed lanterns at the top of each post and a ceiling fan at the pergola’s center. On this covered deck, comfort is always in season.
