Multiple elevations. Steep hills. Rugged, unforgiving landscape. Relentless, annoying inserts. Travel time to site daily. All these complications would leave your average deck building company at a loss – they likely wouldn’t even show up on day one – let alone complete the masterpiece you see on this page. However, at Windeck, we’re constantly looking for challenges, as with each challenge we overcome, we know on the other side, our deck building game will be elevated to a level not yet dreamed.
Our repeat customer, previously a fan of Windeck’s work at their home in Winnipeg, had us come out to run a consult at their slice of paradise at Barrier Bay in the Whiteshell, we knew we were likely to face some extreme adversity. Arriving onsite we gained firsthand insight as what laid before us, but we relish in the challenge. But sometimes before you can even get started, you need to rely on the assistance of others as at the end of the day, safety comes first. So, we called in some experts to help us get this project off the ground…
For this project, the single largest challenge we needed to overcome would impact the project through all parts of the process. The space to build the deck on was of multiple elevations with steep hills. To ensure structural integrity and safety of the deck and outdoor living space are met, we called in surveyors and an engineer to help plan through the design and construction. Our theme of safety ran throughout every aspect of the project – from the pile layout, to the team following industry standards for safe work from ladders, to the final touches and detailed considered. The finished product resulted in a better outcome for our customer – which is the name of the game!
Raining outside? Who cares! Too many pesky critters at dusk? They won’t get you in here! As part of the uniqueness to this project, we built a large screened room which is positioned for optimal views of the lakeside. In addition to keeping the bugs out, it’ll also keep you dry with the use of Duraduk vinyl membrane applied during the construction.
