Historic Brookhaven is a wonderful place to call home. The allure of Brookhaven is steeped in history with many of it’s homes originally designed by a number of renowned architects during the pre-war period.
Archadeck of Greater Atlanta is currently in the process of building a new deck for these homeowners. The deck will span an impressive 1400 sq. feet upon completion. The homeowners selected Gossen PVC decking. In addition to Gossen being a beautiful decking board, it is the only PVC line that carries a lifetime guarantee. The completed project will include an inset spa, charming cedar pergola, and a gable roof barbecue porch (covered patio) with nice railing to compliment the earthy wood grains used throughout the structure.
Sometimes in the design process, the selection of higher end materials forces some additional budget decisions. When we initially met with the homeowners we anticipated a 1500-1600 sq. foot deck design. Through the process of design and choosing materials, the homeowners decided they wanted to have a low maintenance deck. That is why they made the decision to invest in Gossen 100% PVC decking. They scaled back the original size to about 1200 Sq. foot deck and now they see some other opportunities within their yard.
We found out early into the project that we would have a challenge in terms of delivering material. In order to get the materials to the home in a timely manner we had to go down the neighbors’ drive and then cross a circa 1800’s bridge with the materials in tow. Getting the material to it’s proper location on this project is proving many hands working together can make light work. Archadeck of Greater Atlanta believes in teamwork and having expert project managers which is important because every job is different from the design to what’s involved in delivering materials and up until the final nail is placed.
When the homeowners purchased their Brookhaven home about 8 years ago,it came with an above ground pool with a wood surround deck. At the time the existing yard wasn’t very useful for much more. So they demolished the pool and existing deck themselves in anticipation of the project we are currently working on. Along with the stunning Gossen Spanish Walnut deck, they are adding a spa deck outside the master bedroom which will contain a luscious Hot Springs spa tub. The area will also include a pergola over about a 10×20 area. The pergola has been engineered to have a larger header so they can use pure posts and have a unique fan shaped pergola. The pergola will also include custom made Gossen benches. The homeowners plan to finish the project out with Fortress black round metal balusters which will aid in beauty and will leave ample space to visually see out through to the back yard.
Take a virtual tour of the finished project below.
