Front row seats to Bluestem.

The request from this customer was “We want to entertain people for concerts without having to actually go to them.” With the Bluestem Amphitheater located in the backyard we politely said coming right up!

“Create us a new deck that carries the same design as the old. O-but wait, we want a pergola too!”

This was a unique build, the customer loved their old deck so much they wanted us to demolish it but recreate it with a whole load of flair and fun seating! There is no challenge we will turn down. Now they have a new safe environment to watch their daughter grow up in their backyard!

The Cateo.

By far the coolest things we’ve build for an animal! This long time customer of ours called and said “You know, our cat really likes to be outside but we are afraid she would run away from the yard. Do you have any idea’s?” Why yes we do! We turned this existing structure into a screened in Cateo, formally known as the Patio.

A deck fit for a band.

This deck Jams, like really Jams out! This customer called looking for a deck that can fit a band. If there is a band involved we’re in!

Rocking chairs to the west.

We don’t typically do before and after pictures. But, this one definitely deserved for the transformation to be noticed! This porch was built to keep the original look and feel of this farm house that’s continued to stay in the family. Now there are some things that went more modern, but the feel stayed the same.

Three decks, one house.

It’s definitely not common to get a call to build three decks on one home. It’s one of those, I may have misunderstood moments. But no, it wasn’t. When they said they wanted three decks, they meant they wanted all three decks!

Cedar, oh the smell of fresh cut cedar!

When you need a view of your children in the pool, an easy way to get in and out and a place to read a book by the water you simply give us a call. This may be a small deck, but its big on memories I bet!


There is nothing better in the lakes area than an extension of your space! This space will be home to a golf simulator and bar! One of those places I’ll be happy to stop by from time to time.


This couple wanted a place to entertain. With huge likable personalities they needed a space to fit the many great friends that gravitate to surround them.

Small decks make big memories!

It’s not always the size of the deck that matters! It’s the memories that are made on them.

It’s all for the love of the dogs!

This Gal has a special place in her heart for her dogs. So much so she needed a good kennel for them at the lake that was shaded and kept them out of the elements. This deck was never about what she needed or wanted, the conversations were always about the kennel.

The deck that takes the cake for views!

Have you ever worked somewhere that you never wanted to leave? This is that place for us! While building this deck we had an overlooking view of Lake Ida near Cormorant. We were early enough for sunrise and were able to catch some sunsets at this special place.

A home for a boat.

A shop made to suit a fisherman. When you walk in this shop you are met with a space made for a hardcore angler!
