When it comes to outdoor living design, it becomes very easy to want it all. We might too-often encounter such convoluted designs, which draw our eye from the modest beauty of a space. At The Porch Company, we do enjoy an uninhibited design, which is a tapestry of small refinements, like this one in Green Hills, Tennessee.
This breezy deck is a breath of fresh air with no fuss, easy styling
These Green Hills homeowners are longstanding clients of The Porch Company. We originally built their porch and deck in 2003 and have returned to upgrade the space with new functional elements. We first returned to add an outdoor fireplace to the covered porch. The latest upgrades include all new TimberTech® AZEK decking and new railings throughout.
This low-maintenance deck is the very picture of a lazy Sunday afternoon. The great part is that these homeowners can relax any day of the week on their AZEK deck. By re-decking the space, The Porch Company has given this family even more opportunities to enjoy their deck and porch, and less time maintaining them. The TimberTech PremierRail® with our PorchCo PVC Cathedral Scroll panel, Hermitage sleeve and cap, and small arched slatted gate makes the space ultimately low-maintenance. Neither the deck nor railings will have to undergo periodic sanding, painting, or staining. Cleaning is all that must be done to keep this deck looking it’s very best.

Our PorchCo Hermitage sleeve comes in two standard sizes (4.75”x4.75” or 6.75”x6.75”) but was custom-sized for this project’s requirements. The photo below illustrates our customization of the corner post sleeve and cap.

The beauty of this railing is not just in its appearance, but also in its durability. The PorchCo Cathedral Scroll Panel and Hermitage sleeves are made with cellular PVC to withstand the test of time and the elements. Our PVC railing products give homeowners the ease of maintenance with the beauty of a decorative iron railing aesthetic. The wood-grained, cellular PVC material will still be lovely in 20 years.

Though, we typically accommodate one of three standard stair railing angles, we can customize the angle to fit your stair’s slope. In the first phase of this project, we created the custom lattice with 1”x4” pressure-treated wood. At The Porch Company, we never use thin, pre-fabricated lattice, but instead build our own out of 1” thick wood. This lattice was installed in 2003, and still looks great!

The mixture of white and gray used throughout this deck and porch is cool and classic. The color palette will remain neutral and will be complementary to any additional colors these homeowners choose to use to include with furnishings and décor in the future.

Here again, you will see the customization of the railing post sleeve. In order to eliminate the need for a double-posted aesthetic, we create custom-sized sleeves. You will also notice that the sleeve on the left has been cut, to accommodate installation at the brick wall.

These clients chose to keep their existing beadboard wall around the covered porch, which will allow for continued privacy therein. Looking from inside the covered porch, out to the deck, you will notice that there is a lot of room to move throughout both spaces. These Green Hills homeowners will be comfortable hosting guests or privately relaxing.
The stone fireplace is flanked by two porch shutters. These shutters will offer protection from the elements, and further the feeling of privacy for the clients and their guests.
