Archadeck of Central CT designed and built this custom outdoor living combination to speak to the individual needs of this Durham, CT, family. The space includes a paver patio, screened porch and spacious deck. Each of the structures was designed to work in unison, much like one large outdoor room with different areas to enjoy various functions.
The homeowners are musicians and they wanted a space for family and friends to gather for playing music and outdoor entertaining. The entire design is low-maintenance so more time can be spent harmonizing in the space rather than maintaining it.
We used Fiberon Ipe decking on the deck, stairs and screened porch. The screened porch features a tempered glass kneewall and gable end transoms so the view into the spacious backyard is never obscured.
Part of the ease of this design is the way Archadeck of Central CT built the stairs wide enough to serve as seating. This element makes it easy to play musical instruments within the space as no constraints are present.
