Berlin CT screened gazebo and low maint. deck combo

A new and improved outdoor living space provides added function and beauty by design for these Berlin, CT homeowners.

Our focus this week is a deck and gazebo outdoor living combination that delivers double the outdoor living enjoyment within the same outdoor space. When we initially met with these Berlin, CT, homeowners their deck was in need of updating. The existing deck was not conducive to their active outdoor lifestyle. With only one opening to exit or enter the deck, it was time to rethink the positive and alleviate the negative. Not only did these homeowners wish to update their deck to better suit their needs they also wanted a deck with low-maintenance qualities. Since the homeowners spent a great deal of time on their deck they also wanted an accompaniment space which would work in unison with the anticipated new deck and provides shade.

This image shows the existing deck and backyard area before we began the project.

Archadeck of Central CT designed a low-maintenance deck and screened gazebo combination that offers a refuge from inclement weather, insects and provides ample shade. The spacious gazebo is designed to function in conjunction with the deck and makes the perfect place to escape when that summer rain makes utilizing the deck impossible.

We began the project by tearing down the existing deck and replacing it with a new  low-maintenance deck design with two openings. The new deck is built from low-maintenance TimberTech Twin Finish composite decking with a white TimberTech Radiance Rail which is also low-maintenance. The new deck makes better use of the designated deck area in correlation to the home, and the gazebo. For added comfort and convenience the deck includes built-in bench seating as well. The color scheme chosen for the new deck and gazebo matches the existing home and provides fluidity and better flow within the space.

The screened gazebo was built using the ScreenEze track system. Part of the beauty of this innovative system lies within the clarity of the screen itself. As you peer out from the interior of the gazebo the screen is nearly opaque which sets the stage for spectacular views. This gazebo is loaded with charming details such as the interior ceiling. We installed a cedar v-grooved pine ceiling which adds a rustic feel to the gazebos’ interior. Careful attention was shown in every detail of this screened outdoor room. The cedar braces which are located on the top of the composite beams offer structural support and also add to the cottage charm present within the space.

The new AZEK low maintenance deck offers dual access to the backyard and convenient built-in bench seating.

The homeowners are elated with their new outdoor refuge and take comfort in knowing the new deck and gazebo addition will allow for many more outdoor living opportunities than that of their previous space. These homeowners love the outdoors, going so far as to place and decorate a Christmas tree upon their deck each year. The new design will offer many more holiday decorating opportunities as well. It looks like Christmas came early for these Berlin, CT homeowners with their new beloved outdoor living combination!
