At first glance this deck seems as though it might be located on some exotic, tropical island. Indeed, the tranquil lakeside setting feels thousands of miles away from civilization when it is actually located right here in Lexington, SC!
When Archadeck of Central SC originally consulted with the homeowner on this project, they had a deck that was rotting away due to the inadequate quality of the pressure-treated boards that were originally used. We frequently see existing decks begin to degrade because inferior-grade lumber was used. In the case of this deck, we suggested that the entire structure be demolished with the exception of the gazebo and tiki hut, and a new deck with a custom outdoor kitchen built in its place.
The new deck was built using TimberTech synthetic decking. TimberTech provides the same look and feel of traditional wood but with the added strength and quality of composite materials. Their motto is “think wood made tougher,” which is a realistic description as this decking material never needs painting or staining, is tough enough to resist mold, mildew, stains and scratches and comes backed by a lengthy warranty.
In addition to the new and improved deck, Archadeck of Central SC also designed and integrated a custom outdoor kitchen within the existing grass-roofed tiki hut that is part of the space. The kitchen will allow endless dining and outdoor entertaining opportunities since there is no need to trek back to the home when it is time to eat! The kitchen is built from stacked stone and features a marble top with an “eat in” graduated counter height perfect for bar stools. The design also includes a grill, sink, fridge and much more. By integrating the kitchen inside the tiki hut, the homeowners will have a shady spot to relax in with a feel reminiscent of being on island time — right in their own backyard!
Of course, the natural topography of the landscape adds to the tropical feel of the outdoor living space. The deck is situated to take in the stunning views and breezes of the homeowner’s private lake which is flanked by a natural boulder stone bank. It’s not hard to whisk your spirits away to a tropical paradise —luau anyone?
