A Newfangled Deck Design for a Classic Macon Home!

At Archadeck of Central Georgia, we understand the vintage appeal of the homes off Forest Hill. These homeowners had a patio, which had surpassed its usable lifespan. We were able to build a new deck, in a brand new way, while keeping the classic aesthetic intact.

Sometimes, it is necessary to implement a new outdoor living structure into an existing design palette, without disrupting the allure. This is one such project, located in the ever-trendy Forest Hill area, where homes of yesteryear attract homeowners and admirers alike.

A job for an experienced Macon deck builder!

Archadeck of Central Georgia arrived at this home to find a raised poured patio slap, with brick edging and skirting. A functional patio, until it had begun to crack and sink. The patio slab was visibly sunken 2-3” inches in areas, and was set to further fall and break.


— The existing slab patio needed resuscitation, stat!

We got to work breaking away and removing a large portion of the offending slab. When it came to preserving the vintage aesthetic, we knew that keeping the brick was the only course of action. Working by the creed “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” we devised a unique way to give these homeowners the structurally sound wood deck they desired, while keeping the brick surround.


— A new wood deck for a classic home.

This new deck is literally inset into the brick surround, supported by the existing footing. The diagonal wood inlay is truly a unique take on a new deck for a vintage space! This deck attaches to the home’s existing screened porch, essentially doubling their use of their outdoor space. This 10’ x 21.5’ deck is large enough for entertaining or relaxing and gave these homeowners a new and improved spot to grill.

New deck railings for this new/old deck.

The custom hybrid railings were constructed with wood framing and posts and Fortress Railing powder coated steel picket infill with alternating decorative baskets. The railings were built into the deck structure, and the deck was built around it.
