Covered Porch with double fireplace
This might just be our favorite project to date! When Turner Contracting Services was contacted about building an outdoor living addition in Huntersville, NC, we were pretty pumped! We LOVE the outdoors and love helping folks find creative ways to get outside! These clients had a desire for a large covered porch with a two sided fireplace and a patio area. When we first met to discuss their dreams for this new living space, we discussed as many details as we could to make sure that our design would meet their needs.
They had an existing 14'x14' deck that they wanted removed so the footprint could be enlarged. After the initial planning meeting, we went to work with a design that would meet the needs for the space. A structural engineer was included in the design process for this project and then we were off and running to begin construction!
DEMO days are always fun for our team!!

One thing that was importnat to these clients was having a no/low-maintenance finished product. They did not want to have to worry about keeping up with painting and protecting presure-treated lumber, so they opted for a finished level that included all composite material. We used TimberTech composite decking for the deck boards and columns wraps, railings, and other finishes from Lansing.
The stone fireplace was also a very important feature for this project! Our clients wanted a two-sided fireplace that could be enjoyed from many angles! We selected an Aspen Gray stone for the fireplace.
We have the best mason ever! We love working with subcontractors that care about our projects just as much as we do!
This finished product is an 18'x18' covered porch with a gable roof, beaded board ceiling, a two-sided stone fireplace, and a 280 square foot paver patio.
Our client wanted a rustic feeling mantle for the fireplace. Our team handmade this floating mantle piece to fit the space just perfectly!
