When you need a smile, head outside. This dock has a great two-tone appearance with the natural wood tones contrasting against the grey decking.
This beauty had great water depth just off the edge of the shore. Contrary to most installs, the walkway starts along the shore for this project.
Sure, you could use a swim ladder, but why not have a set of stairs leading into the lake? This ensures that you'll always have a step that makes it easy to get on/off your paddle board or kayak.
When you need seating for your whole family.....
Double decker docks may not always be practical, but when you have the opportunity to gaze out from the top level, it's all worth it.
In an HOA where roofs are prohibited, the boat lift (and boat) are left visible and unprotected from the elements.
It may be quite a walk to make it down to this platform, but to have an undisturbed view from an elegant platform is definitely worth it.
Looking for an easy way to get in and out of your kayak - here it is.
This unique dock has an upper deck that looks down over the octagonal fire pit with built-in seating.
This upper deck is hidden from view from the house, resulting in a matching tile roof appearance from shore. Great private setting for hosting intimate gatherings.
Due to lake fluctuations, our client wanted the dock to be split into two levels - and he wanted the difference between the levels to be visible.
Instead of hiding the stairs, we worked with our client to make the stairs a focal point of this deck.
Our clients wanted to put in a unique area for their hammock. Does an elevated corner octagonal platform work?
With a two-tone picture frame border and no pilings extending above deck level, this walkway and platform shout clean and classy.
