IN OAKTON, VA
Sometimes the solution to your problem is not what you think it’s going to be, as these Oakton clients can attest to.
Originally they wanted to replace their old, dated deck with a covered one. But covering a new deck would block the natural light into their beautiful 2-story living room, and the current deck darkened their basement drastically as it was. Add the fact that there was no easy outdoor handicap access to the basement, which was a design requirement, and they had a design conundrum on their hands.
After listening to our clients, we knew we couldn’t give them what they really wanted by just building them a new deck—in fact we didn’t build them a deck at all! The solution was three-fold:
1) First we replaced the deck with three balconies to preserve the light in the living room and lighten up the basement.
2) Then we built them a beautiful covered flagstone patio off of the kitchen, complete with a stately grill center. The addition of ceiling fans and heaters make it relaxing and comfortable retreat for all seasons.
3) We then carried forward the flagstone to create a beautiful, deep and gradual staircase that gently wraps around from the front of the house to the basement level where there is another, handsomely landscaped patio.
With an outdoor space that allows them to enjoy more of the outdoors and preserve what they have, our clients couldn’t be happier!
