Transforming Lakeside Leisure: The Archadeck Way at Lake James

Reimagining Your Lakeside Retreat with a Lake James Custom TimberTech Deck

Nestled on the serene shores of Lake James in Angola, IN, a family treasure awaited a much-needed revival. With years of joyful gatherings and nature's relentless cycles, their deck had succumbed to the ravages of time. This is where our journey at Archadeck of Fort Wayne began, crafting a sanctuary that blends seamlessly with the rhythms of lake life.

Our clients, brimming with ideas, brought to us a vision of expanding their outdoor haven. They dreamed of a deck that not only embraced the existing beauty of their lake home but also provided a grander stage for their family memories. We were thrilled to embark on this journey, guided by their insights and our expertise in creating custom outdoor living spaces.

The Transformation: Crafting Elegance with TimberTech

The heart of this project was the extension and reconstruction of the upper deck, enhancing its footprint by an impressive 25%. But why stop at one level? We introduced a lower deck, a fresh canvas extending the patio area beneath, adorned with a cozy bench - a perfect nook for reflection or conversation.

TimberTech AZEK Brownstone decking was the material of choice, renowned for its durability and aesthetic appeal. This choice wasn't just about looks but about creating a space that would endure the test of time and elements, a hallmark of our commitment at Archadeck of Fort Wayne. Complementing the rich hues of the decking, we opted for white PVC trim boards for the decks and posts, adding a touch of elegance and contrast.

One of the project's crown jewels was the TimberTech DrySpace underdeck drainage system. This innovative feature transformed the area below the deck into a dry, inviting space, enhancing its usability regardless of weather conditions.

Seamless Integration: Respecting the Past, Embracing the Future

In every project, we believe in harmonizing the new with the old. The existing vinyl railing, still in prime condition, was seamlessly integrated into the new design, a testament to our commitment to sustainability and cost-efficiency. This approach preserved a piece of the home's history and allowed us to allocate resources more effectively.

Our process involved a meticulous inspection of previous projects with similar specifications. This step was crucial for material confirmation and for our clients to witness our dedication to quality and detail firsthand.

The Outcome: Lakeside Leisure for All Seasons

The completed project is more than just a deck; it's a multi-dimensional outdoor experience. The expanded upper deck offers a majestic view of Lake James, a perfect spot for sunrises, sunsets, or simply soaking in the tranquility of the waters. Below, the patio area, now larger and more versatile, beckons for gatherings, celebrations, or peaceful solitude.

We strategically scheduled the construction in the fall, post-lake season, ensuring that our work didn't interrupt those cherished moments at the lake. Our timing reflects our understanding of the unique dynamics of lakeside living and our respect for our clients' lifestyles.
