Travertine Tile stone deck with iron rail by Archadeck of Charlotte
Lake Norman is one of the largest lakes in the Carolina’s. Situated north and west of Charlotte, NC, it is hundreds of miles of shoreline with the perfect blend of privacy and happening areas. There are small coves that are great escapes, active boating and fishing areas, and gorgeous lake front homes that rival any wonderful beach front properties.
With all of the development of these homes on and around the lake, the residents want to enjoy Carolina’s ideal year around weather and be outside more and more. Even those with more modest homes are investing in grand outdoor living spaces. The spaces typically include a deck, a patio, a screen porch, an outdoor fireplace or fire pit, and elaborate outdoor kitchens.
The biggest growth seems to be in shade structures where you and your guests can be outside comfortably with a ceiling fan under the covered porch or patio and protected from the hot sun. The designs are endless and with the expanded growth in demand for outdoor living around Lake Norman, the features continue to push the envelope with all of the amenities we are accustomed to inside being designed and built for the outdoors!

Archadeck of Charlotte designed and built this composite deck, rail, and benches at Lake Norman
Lake Norman is one of the largest lakes in the southeast. It offers hundreds of miles of shoreline, beautiful greenery and landscape, custom designed homes, all of the watersports and fishing imaginable on a lake, and the best of outdoor living spaces and designs! Some of the most beautiful design ideas and architectural integration comes from Lake Norman homeowners and at Archadeck of Charlotte, we are heavily involved in the design/ build phase of the outdoor spaces.
Most people have trouble visualizing what something might look like or what the possibilities are to enhance their backyards. We start with the homeowner’s wishes and concepts and bring them to life through 3D computer-aided design renderings to scale so that prior to building the structure, the homeowner can actually see how this will look on their exact home. It gives the homeowner the unique opportunity to make major or subtle changes to the design and giving them a great understanding of how this will impact not only the overall look of the project but also the cost.
From Mooresville, Cornelius, to Huntersville, Lake Norman has grown immensely over the past 15 years and more people are finding the outdoor so desirable that they are adding onto their homes rather than moving just to stay in the area. The schools are improved and the choices have improved.
The most common outdoor living spaces are to build a nice composite low-maintenance deck like Trex that allows for great views of the lake. We often design and build shade structures that keep the view available but also keep the sun from rendering the backyard useless. Outdoor kitchens and fireplaces are now as common as patios.
