Just because the 2013 Archadeck Dream Backyard Makeover contest has drawn to a close does not mean you still can’t have the backyard of your dreams! The grand prize winners of the contest were announced on May 17th, and they are to receive a custom outdoor space that incorporates a TimberTech synthetic outdoor space with Belgard hardscapes. This outdoor living combination is just one example of the many possible outdoor living choices you can dream up as your perfect backyard retreat. If you have been yearning for an outdoor oasis all your own, but taking on an outdoor living space combination is just too much to take on in one endeavor, Archadeck of Central SC can build the outdoor living space you have been wishing for one step at a time. Our Staged (or phased) building program enables you to plan and construct your dream backyard over time.
Our phased building program allows homeowners the freedom to build your ideal backyard in stages making it easier on your budget, and with less of an impact on your lifestyle. Phased building consists of engineering, designing and building your outdoor space in phases so that future additions or amendments can be added easily. This is made possible by building with your future circumstances and the structural integrity of your project in mind.
We assist you in putting together a master plan to set your backyard dreams into motion. Archadeck of Central S.C. can assist in planning your ultimate outdoor space ensuring all the structural footwork is in place to facilitate future additions. We can begin with a dominant starting point and can also work in unison with your pool company, lighting company and your landscaper on the structural components needed to proceed with your grand backyard design.
Our primary goal during our initial consultation is to understand your needs, desires, budget and priorities to come up with a plan custom made for you. For example, if your vision of the ideal backyard consists of a low-maintenance deck and backyard pool with a hardscape patio surround, we would suggest starting the first portion of your master plan closest to the house with the deck. It is always a good idea to begin your master plan working outward from your home. The primary reason for starting closest to your home is to ensure less lifestyle interruption. It also ensures that all primary structures are tied into your home structurally as you build out from the initial phase. There is less room to overcome obstacles that may arise when you begin a job working from the outside back to your home.
The second portion of this backyard vision would entail working in unison with your pool installer to ensure every detail is accounted for and to facilitate each phase of your project. We also work with your electrician and plumber to get all your lines placed in advance to avoid retrofitting in the future. Laying the foundations for the additional phases of your master plan is an important part of your project. During this portion of construction we would concentrate on adding your backyard pool and the paver patio surround. Since the conduit and lines for the pool are already run under the deck and patio areas, installing the pool will not disturb these completed areas. Voila – your backyard dream has become a reality and, since it was completed in phases, the project was easy on the wallet and was not a major interruption to your lifestyle. Another benefit of staged building is that during each stage as we work toward fulfilling your dream of the perfect outdoor space, many homeowners comment they feel they get a new backyard over and over again.
