The deck pictured here features the clean, horizontal lines of a stainless
steel cable rail. Those same clean, horizontal lines are repeated in the
board skirting below. Notice how the same horizontal lines achieve opposite
results: thin, light stainless steel cables maximize visibility to the
yard, whereas wide, dark wood slats minimize the view under the deck.
On this project, we used low-maintenance
TimberTech synthetic decking in the TimberTech Evolutions for this deck’s rail
and rail cap. A natural bluestone patio complements the deck. This attractive
deck design reminds you that there is a wide variety of materials available
for deck and patio designs.
Notice how the light tan of the patio furniture is repeated in the deck
floor, the stair treads, the planters, the lattice, and even some of the
patio stones. The contrasting dark color of the posts and rail cap make
the deck and balcony railing stand out.
Is your deck large enough, or do you feel your family is outgrowing that
outdoor space? It may be time to expand your deck. You will find that
a larger deck offers additional functionality. You can plan larger outdoor
parties. You can furnish different sections of a larger deck for various
purposes. A larger deck enables you to separate spaces for dining and
for lounging. Add an outdoor kitchen to your deck and what do you have?
A combination outdoor living space!
Would You Like a Patio with that Deck?
Some homeowners love the look and feel of a patio made with modern-day
pavers or a traditional stone surface. The deck and patio combination
offers you the choice of overlooking your yard or relaxing at ground level
with a lovely set of patio furniture. We can help you select the perfect
materials so your deck complements your patio, and vice versa. When we
design your combination outdoor living space, we keep in mind that the
various structures must work well together in style and function. We’ll
re-design your back yard to meet all your requirements.
Combination Outdoor Living Spaces Serve Lexington, MA, Homeowners Well
This stunning and versatile outdoor living combination space includes a
low-maintenance, two-story deck and gable roof screened porch, giving
these homeowners the best of both worlds. When you have a deck and a screened
porch together, you never have to sacrifice comfort. Dining on the deck
is the perfect idea … except when the bugs are flying around your
food or the sun is making you uncomfortable. On days when you would prefer
to dine in a protected space, a screen porch is your answer.
Where Are Your Favorite Porches – Front or Back?
If it is a porch you desire, then as your Lexington porch builder we would
like to hear about your functional needs and aesthetic preferences. We
can design and build your ideal porch to meet all your requirements. We’ve
built so many porches over the years that we can also offer design suggestions
a homeowner might not think of. That’s one of the many ways our
considerable design and construction experience works for you.
We are adept at designing the perfect front porch and the perfect back
porch as well. Many families enjoy having a front porch and a back porch,
too. Why limit yourself to just one porch? The front porch allows you
to keep an eye on the community while you relax after a delicious meal.
The back porch gives you a private hideaway when privacy is what you want.
If you’d rather not grill your steaks in view of the neighborhood,
let us design a back porch with an outdoor kitchen for relaxed backyard
The Climate-controlled Sunroom or Versatile 3-season Porch – Which
Will You Choose?
Whether you think of us as your
Lexington sunroom builder, your
3-season porch builder, or your 4-season room builder, we love that you’re thinking of
us. When you meet with us for a design consultation, we can discuss the
pros and cons of these three structures. While the 3-season porch offers
versatility, the sunroom provides a climate-controlled space all year
long. Regardless of which outdoor living space you choose, we will custom-design
that space to blend perfectly with your home so it doesn’t look added on.
